          Green Day's "American Idiot" Soaring Up UK Charts in Anticipation of Trump Visit      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

This album is nearly 14 years old, the same age as its ideal listenership

One good thing about the United Kingdom, aside from its surprisingly strong showing at this year's World Cup, is that they still care about pop charts there. Every so often, a percentage of the British population bands together to ensure that some album or song gets to number one by a particular date. The last one I remember was in 2008, when a campaign to make a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" number one the week of Christmas resulted in three versions of the song landing in the top 40 (including the numbers one and two slots).

The latest iteration of this culture jamming impulse has a slightly more caustic aim. A Facebook group is campaigning to make Green Day's 2014 single "American Idiot" number one in the charts during the time when US President Donald Trump is in the country for a "working visit." According to CNN, the effort is working, and it's only one of several art-based anti-Trump protests gaining momentum.

The nearly 14-year-old song is currently sitting at number 18 with just over a week to go. And here I thought life under George W. Bush was the only condition stultifying enough to make that song and album feel like bold political gestures...

          Refusal to Use Preferred Gender Pronouns Costs British Doctor His Job      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On 07.09.18 05:02 PM posted by Jeremiah Poff The belief that gender is assigned at birth has cost one British doctor his job as a disability assessor for the Department of Work and Pensions in the United Kingdom. Dr. David Mackereth, 55, the father of four, was dismissed from the department after only recently being hired because he told the instructor for a training course that he would not recognize a pronoun that didn’t correspond to a patient’s biological sex, the Telegraph reported (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/07/08/government-drops-doctor-says-gender-given-birth/) Sunday. Mackereth, who worked 26 years for the National Health Service, says sex is established at birth and is both genetic and biological. That’s something that “has been believed by mankind for centuries,” he said. “I’m not attacking the transgender movement,” Mackereth said, “but I’m defending my right to freedom of speech, and freedom of belief.”

          14226: Starbucks To Stop Sucking.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

CNN reported Starbucks plans to eliminate plastic straws in its stores by 2020. And Starbucks hopes to eliminate discriminating against Blacks in its stores by 3020.

Starbucks is eliminating plastic straws from all stores

By Danielle Wiener-Bronner

Starbucks is going strawless.

The coffee company announced Monday that it will phase out plastic straws from all of its stores by 2020.

The changes will help Starbucks (SBUX) eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws per year, the company said.

Plastic straws contribute to ocean pollution and pose a danger to marine life. Some governments have begun banning them.

To eliminate straws, Starbucks is transitioning from the flat, plastic lids that require them, to ones that feature a raised lip you can drink from. The new designs have drawn comparisons to an adult “sippy cup.”

Frappuccino drinks will still be served with dome lids, but with straws made from paper or compostable plastic. Coffee drinkers who prefer straws for other beverages can request the new eco-friendly versions.

Some Starbucks drinks, like cold brew with cold foam, are already served in cups with strawless lids.

Starbucks will begin rolling out the new lids for all drinks this fall, starting with stores in Vancouver, Canada, and Seattle.

In a statement, CEO Kevin Johnson called the move away from plastic straws a “significant milestone” in the company’s sustainability efforts.

Starbucks had already committed $10 million to help develop recyclable, compostable cups for hot drinks.

Other companies have been ditching plastic straws as bans on the item have gone into place.

Last month, McDonald’s (MCD) said that it would start switching to paper straws in the United Kingdom and Ireland in September. The transition will be complete in 2019, the company said.

The announcement from McDonald’s followed an April proposal by the UK government to ban plastic straws in the country. In May, the European Union also suggested a ban on some plastic items, including straws.

In the United States, local governments are already putting similar restrictions into place. Seattle’s ban on plastic straws and utensils went into effect last week. Oakland and Berkeley, California, and other cities have also banned the use of disposable straws.

The UK government said that 1 million birds and more than 100,000 sea mammals die each year from eating and getting tangled in plastic waste.

“Plastic straws that end up in our oceans have a devastating effect on species,” said Erin Simon, director of sustainability research & development and material science at World Wildlife Fund, US, in a statement. “We hope others will follow in [Starbucks’] footsteps.”

Starbucks said that it is the largest food and beverage retailer to have promised to get rid of plastic straws.

Nicholas Mallos, director of Ocean Conservancy’s Trash Free Seas program, called Starbucks’ decision a “shining example” of how companies can help fight ocean pollution.

“With eight million metric tons of plastic entering the ocean every year, we cannot afford to let industry sit on the sidelines,” he said in a statement.

          Trump heads to Europe to fight with NATO, meet Putin: 'Putin may be the easiest of them all'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Having dispensed with one last bit of Constitution-punching with the pardon of a pair of far-right serial arsonists whose actions nearly killed federal firefighters, Donald Trump is finally off to Europe to be protested at in the United Kingdom, do the NATO-punching he has been looking forward to for months, and have another one-on-one, face to face meeting with the only world leader he has consistently praised, Russian kleptocrat Vladimir Putin.

The NATO meeting is the most dicey of the three, and it is not clear either what specific agenda Trump seeks, rather than the usual airing of grievances, or what the outcomes will be. His advisers do not know, and he himself does not know, because Donald Trump is a hopeless idiot who has yet to demonstrate he even grasps why NATO exists, much less can hold in his head a list of current national security threats and countermeasures. But the list of things that could happen is long and sordid.

• According the New York Times, allies are "concerned that Mr. Trump may try to bargain American troop strength in Europe for increased military spending by others." Oh, and Trump "appears to have a special animus toward Germany."

• He will likely continue his insistence that primary NATO foe Vladimir Putin be given concessions because Reasons–including the repeated suggestion that Crimea be permanently ceded to Russia after Russia's military invasion and occupation. Nobody will be able to discern why Trump continues to promote Putin's interests over those of our American allies, as usual, and reporters will continue to studiously refrain from speculating as to why Trump, whose campaign was caught attempting to collude with Russian government efforts to harm his election opponent, has become such a reliable peddler of Russian talking points.

• He may announce that the United States will be pulling out of the NATO treaty entirely. This would be an extremist outcome, but it is one that been rattling around his noggin for a long time now, and one he has mused on aloud in meetings with other world leaders. He may announce it simply because he likes the sound of saying it.

          After Trump Supreme Court nom, what next? 'A free-for-all,’ law prof says       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Minutes after President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court was announced on Monday night, the political hype machine started winding up. Strong opinions were trumpeted, both for and against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who was unknown to most Americans just days ago.

“Judge Kavanaugh should not be allowed anywhere near our nation’s highest bench,” cried Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez. “A superb choice,” retorted the conservative Federation for American Immigration Reform. “Kavanaugh has spent his career ruling against working people in favor of wealthy corporations,” claimed 32BJ SEIU Pennsylvania and Delaware vice president Gabe Morgan. “A judicial grand slam!” said Horace Cooper, co-chair of the black conservative group Project 21, adding, “Those who love our Constitution will be thrilled." 

But in fact, according to Rutgers Law School professor Perry Dane, all this politicking and noise is precisely the problem that is hampering the U.S. Supreme Court from fulfilling its function as the third branch of government, empowered under Article 3 in the U.S. Constitution.

”The whole process is just bizarre. This is not how judges should get selected,” Dane said. “It’s really not up to justices to either affirm or disappoint their supporters. In principle, once they’re appointed, they’re supposed to be free agents, using their best judgment.”

What can we expect during the confirmation hearings for Judge Kavanaugh? A “free-for-all,” said Dane, who clerked for US Supreme Court justice William J. Brennan in the 1980s.

“I’m frankly not looking forward to it. Whoever Trump nominates will be well-prepared and well-rehearsed not to say anything of much interest. … There will be an effort to tease specific views from them, and the nominee will say very general things and will talk about judging in very bland terms,” he predicted. “There’s going to be all the worst aspects of a political campaign without any of the actual information."

Perry predicted that with a Republican majority in the Senate, huge pressure will be brought to bear upon sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), who are seen as potential swing votes. But otherwise, the public can expect a vote along party lines.

“Most Republicans are going to vote yes, most Democrats will vote no,” Dane said. “One of the things I’m not looking forward to in this process is presumably the opponents will try to figure out some personal defect. … If that happens there's a risk of it getting particularly ugly.”

"If I were the Democrats, my opposition would be much less tied to the personality of the candidate," he continued. "I would say we shouldn’t have anybody until the election, or not let Trump get two nominations after the fiasco with Merrick Garland, or shouldn’t let Trump pick somebody while the Mueller investigation is going on.”

A better way?

As an example of a better system, Dane cited the United Kingdom, where three new justices, nominated by a neutral judicial commission, were appointed to the nation’s 12-judge Supreme Court in 2017.

“Even though it is a very important court that issues very important decisions, there wasn’t nearly the same sort of fuss or sense of political crisis,” Dane said. “They really tried to pick the three judges in the country who were the most superbly qualified.”

He argued that past Supreme Courts have had more “flexible” judges, like retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, who despite being a Republican was known for authoring some of the court’s most progressive opinions.

“If I were designing a Supreme Court, I might have a few people who were very clearly ideologues on the left and ideologues on the right, and I'd have a nice mushy center of people who were willing to be convinced one way or the other on each case and issue,” he said. “The current split is very identified with our political parties. … You really have the Supreme Court viewed as another legislature. People just get used to it and they forget that it’s bizarre and weird and bad, both for the law and the country.”

It comes down to what you feel. It has always felt bizarre to me why people load themselves up with the labels of the day. At this moment I am labelled Ulverstonian, Cumbrian, English, British, European based entirely on the geographic naming of place. Insanity in my book. I hear that over there you all are taught to respect the flag. Its a piece of coloured cloth. Not that it is any less daft over here. All six countries on this island have their own flags which the indoctrinated (cannot come up with a better word) wave round and 'stand behind' and yes I suppose respect. The British get told to stand for the national anthem but never the Scot, Welsh, Irish, Englanders . As far as I know the City of London is not part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland so anyone from that little country within a country (same as Washington DC and the Vatican aka the devils within) can remain seated during this anthem nonsense. The Queer of The United Kingdom, Scotland, England (but not Wales it is a principality nor Northern Ireland, it is province) cannot enter the City of London Country in any form of regalia nor can she enter as Queen. Just to really show you how insane this island is there is strong evidence the whole line of Kings and Queens going back centuries are usurpers. Dig a little into Wilson and Blacketts work on this subject it is truly fascinating. The other day clocked a tweet from some deluded fool who identified as a British Scot!

She's just as stylish as ever in the coat. It will be interesting to see what other ensembles she pulls off with ease and grace during her trip in Europe.

The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, tweeted about the trip. She's clearly excited for what is the First Lady's first overseas trip since her kidney surgery. 

She wrote, "Wheels up to #NATOSummit with @POTUS and @FLOTUS. Going to be a great trip!"

When Politics Trumps Economics

Stephen S. Roach




NEW HAVEN – With each passing day, it becomes increasingly evident that US President Donald Trump’s administration cares less about economics and more about the aggressive exercise of political power. This is obviously a source of enormous frustration for those of us who practice the art and science of economics. But by now, the verdict is self-evident: Trump and his team continue to flaunt virtually every principle of conventional economics.

Trade policy is an obvious and essential case in point. Showing no appreciation of the time-honored linkage between trade deficits and macroeconomic saving-investment imbalances, the president continues to fixate on bilateral solutions to a multilateral problem – in effect, blaming China for America’s merchandise trade deficits with 102 countries. Similarly, his refusal to sign the recent G7 communiqué was couched in the claim that the US is like a “piggy bank that everybody is robbing” through unfair trading practices. But piggy banks are for saving, and in the first quarter of this year, America’s net domestic saving rate was just 1.5% of national income. Not much to rob there!

The same can be said of fiscal policy. Trump’s deficit-busting tax cuts and increases in government spending make no sense for an economy nearing a business-cycle peak and with an unemployment rate of 3.8%. Moreover, the feedback loop through the saving channel only exacerbates the very trade problems that Trump claims to be solving. With the Congressional Budget Office projecting that federal budget deficits will average 4.2% of GDP from now until 2023, domestic saving will come under further pressure, fueling increased demand for surplus saving from abroad and even bigger trade deficits in order to fill the void. Yet Trump now ups the ante on tariffs – in effect, biting the very hand that feeds the US economy.

So what Trump is doing is not about economics – or at least not about economics as most academics, political leaders, and citizens know it. Sure, Trump has been quick to draw on some fringe mutations of economics – say, Arthur Laffer’s infamous back-of-a-napkin supply-side musings – but none that have withstood the test of time and rigorous empirical validation.

But why single out economics? The same complaint could be made about Trump’s views on climate change, immigration, foreign policy, or even gun control. It’s power politics over fact-based policymaking.

This should not be all that surprising. Trump’s battle with China merely underscores his eagerness – transparent from the start – to use economics as a foil in his pitch to “Make America Great Again.” Contrary to his bluster over unfair trade deficits, China’s real challenge to the United States is less about economics and more about the race for technological and military supremacy.

Indeed, the pendulum of geopolitical leadership is now in motion. China’s massive pan-Asian infrastructure plan, the Belt and Road Initiative, together with its muscular behavior in the South China Sea, pose far greater threats to American hegemony than does one bilateral piece of a much larger multilateral trade deficit. At the same time, China’s recent efforts to build the institutions of an alternative financial architecture – spearheaded by the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the New (BRICS) Development Bank – stand in sharp contrast to an increasingly inward-looking US.

Much has been written about the historical trajectory of great powers and the military conflicts that often arise during their rise and fall. This is where economics eventually comes back into play. Geostrategic power and economic power are joined at the hip. As Yale historian Paul Kennedy has long stressed, a condition of “imperial overreach” arises when the projection of military power outstrips a country’s shaky economic foundations.

It has been 30 years since Kennedy warned that the US, with its excessive defense spending, was increasingly vulnerable to such overreach. But then the would-be heirs to the US faded: The Soviet Union collapsed, Japan’s economic miracle imploded, and Germany became entangled in reunification and European integration. An unthreatened America plodded on.

China, of course, was barely on the radar screen back then. Moreover, in 1988 the US had a net domestic saving rate of 5.6% of national income – only slightly below the 6.3% average of the final three decades of the twentieth century, but nearly four times the current rate. Back then, the US was spending $270 billion on defense – less than half the $700 billion authorized in the current budget, which now outstrips the combined military outlays of China, Russia, the United Kingdom, India, France, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Germany.

Meanwhile China has ascended. Back in 1988, its per capita GDP was just 4% of the US level (in purchasing-power-parity terms). This year, that ratio is close to 30% – nearly an eightfold increase in just three decades.

Can power politics offset the increasingly tenuous fundamentals of a saving-short US economy that continues to account for a disproportionate share of global military spending? Can power politics contain the rise of China and neutralize its commitment to pan-regional integration and globalization?

The Trump administration seems to believe that America has reached a propitious moment in the economic cycle to play the power game. Yet its strategy will succeed only if China capitulates on the core principles of the growth strategy that frames President Xi Jinping’s great power aspirations: indigenous innovation, technological and military supremacy, and pan-regional leadership.

Like Trump, Xi does not do capitulation. Unlike Trump, Xi understands the linkage between economic and geostrategic power. Trump claims that trade wars are easy to win. Not only is he at risk of underestimating his adversary, but he may be even more at risk of over-estimating America’s strength. The trade war may well be an early skirmish in a much tougher battle, during which economics will ultimately trump Trump.

          Stars To Perform At Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 In Johannesburg      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Jay-Z: Profile

International advocacy organisation Global Citizen today announced that Beyonce, JAY-Z, Cassper Nyovest, D’banj, Ed Sheeran, Eddie Vedder, Femi Kuti, Pharrell Williams and Chris Martin, Sho Madjozi, Tiwa Savage, Usher, and Wizkid will headline the first Global Citizen Festival to be held in Africa, a free-ticketed event on Sunday, 2 December 2018 at the FNB Stadium, Johannesburg.

The December event is the culmination of Global Citizen’s “Mandela 100” campaign in partnership with the House of Mandela; a series of global events honouring the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela in his centenary year.

Oprah Winfrey will deliver a special keynote address remembering Nelson Mandela and his legacy.

Executive producers of the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 include Dr. Precious Moloi Motsepe, Patrice Motsepe, Kweku Mandela, Dave Holmes, Declan Kelly, Liza Henshaw and Hugh Evans.

Hosts of the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 include Naomi Campbell, Sir Bob Geldof, Gayle King, Bonang Matheba, Tyler Perry, and Forest Whitaker.

The Festival broadcast will be produced by Ben Winston and Fulwell 73 Productions.

Nelson Mandela famously called for this generation to realise an end to extreme poverty in one of his last public speeches, and Global Citizen has campaigned on this message with activist-driven events in Vancouver, London, Brussels, and at the upcoming 2018 Global Citizen Festival to be held in New York’s Central Park on 29 September.

Activists and music fans can begin to earn their free tickets starting on August 21st and can sign up today at www.globalcitizen.org.za, demanding world leaders make major investments to end extreme poverty and take a stand for women and girls. The “Mandela 100” campaign seeks to mobilize USD $1 billion in new commitments for the world’s most marginalised people, with USD $500 million set to impact the lives of 20 million women and girls worldwide. These investments will be aimed at ending hunger and increasing access to good nutrition, ending neglected tropical diseases, reducing HIV transmission rates, ensuring every child receives a quality education, reforming and repealing sexist laws, providing funding for women’s health and family planning, and ensuring access to clean water and safe sanitation world wide.

“Nelson Mandela was one of the greatest examples of resistance, patience, and forgiveness that our world will ever know. It is our great honour to campaign in his name and answer his call to be the generation to end extreme poverty,” said Hugh Evans, Global Citizen, Co-Founder and CEO.

“Nelson Mandela believed in people’s potential for goodness, and inner potential to change things for the better, for each other and for ourselves he believed that poverty and injustice were man made problems, that we could solve together. One hundred years on from his birthday, this year’s roving Global Citizen Festival will be held in his honour – in Johannesburg on December 2nd. It has been such a pleasure to put together, and all of the artists have been amazing to work with, perhaps because this is a chance for us to show that we all believe in the same things he did: love, acceptance and forgiveness,” said Chris Martin, Global Citizen Festival curator.

“I am pleased to lend my support to the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, in celebration of Madiba’s rich legacy of social justice, compassion and activism. Each one of us must take inspiration from his fight for equality by being the generation to end extreme poverty. We must ensure that no child or adolescent die from preventable causes, including hunger and malnutrition. I call on world leaders, civil society organizations, business leaders and change agents everywhere to join Global Citizen and take action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals,” said Graça Machel, Founder and Chairperson, The Graça Machel Trust.

“The future of the world lies in the hands of young people. Over half the world is under the age of 25. We must inspire and support them to be the generation to end extreme poverty. Nelson Mandela believed that poverty is man-made and must be overcome by human action. That’s why I’m delighted to support the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, to call on young people and world leaders to take action for a brighter future for everyone,” said Ban Ki-moon, former United Nations Secretary-General.

Ed Sheeran said, “I’m really looking forward to playing the Global Citizen Festival and paying tribute to Nelson Mandela who has inspired so many to fight for what they believe in. It should be a great day!”

Eddie Vedder said, “It is such an honor to be given the chance to head to South Africa to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s incomparable legacy. He showed an entire generation what it means to be a leader and make a difference for the world’s poor. I’m so grateful that this event will serve as a reminder of his great work and inspire us all to carry on in his name.”

“Nelson Mandela’s life story is a testament to the power of the human spirit and one man’s ability to change the world by standing up for what he believed in,” said Oprah Winfrey. “It is one of the great honours of my life to have spent so much time with him, and I look forward to celebrating his courageous life.”

Naomi Campbell said, “I’m truly honoured to celebrate the legacy of Nelson Mandela by co-hosting the 2018 Global Citizen Festival in South Africa. Madiba was a man whose values and wisdom have left a lasting imprint on this world. I cherish everything he taught me about giving, sharing, and forgiving, and I look forward to celebrating his life on December 2nd.”

Sir Bob Geldof said, “I share my friend Nelson Mandela’s belief that poverty is a manmade condition. And its greatest curse. Global Citizen is carrying on a legacy set in place by one of the kindest, most generous, and most courageous and wisest of leaders that our world has ever seen and I am proud to be a part of Mandela 100. It is time we fulfill his call to eliminate extreme poverty with all its attendant evils.”

A number of world leaders will address the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, including South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, Amina J. Mohammed, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway and President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, who both serve as co-chairs of the UN Secretary General’s Advocacy Group for the Sustainable Development Goals, President Mokgweetsi Masisi of Botswana, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization, Alexander De Croo, Deputy Prime Minister of Belgium, Gilbert F. Houngbo, President of the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development, David Beasley, Executive Director of the World Food Programme, Ambassador Ertharin Cousin, Board Director of The Power of Nutrition, and Peter Sands, Executive Director of the The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

Starting today, music fans and activists can sign up at www.globalcitizen.org.za to be among the first to be notified of the action journey launch. Actions include emailing world leaders, signing petitions, and using social media to generate commitments in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The Festival will be the culmination of a six-months long campaign engaging Global Citizens around the world on seven Global Goals:
POVERTY: (Global Goal 1): End all forms of poverty everywhere
ZERO HUNGER (Global Goal 2): End all forms of hunger and malnutrition
HEALTH (Global Goal 3): Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages
EDUCATION (Global Goal 4): Ensure every child has access to a quality education
GIRLS & WOMEN (Global Goal 5): End all forms of discrimination against women and girls everywhere to ensure that #SheIsEqual
WATER & SANITATION (Global Goal 6): Ensure everyone has access to clean water and sanitation
LIFE BELOW WATER (Global Goal 14): addressing the threat plastic pollution poses to the oceans

Global Citizen is proud to join forces with the most forward thinking and innovative organizations committed to the mission and movement of ending extreme poverty.

The Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 will be presented by Major Partner The Motsepe Foundation, with major partners, Johnson & Johnson, Cisco, Nedbank, Vodacom, Big Concerts, House of Mandela, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Goalkeepers, Eldridge Industries, and Associate Partner, HP.

Since the first Global Citizen Festival in New York in 2012, Global Citizen has grown into one of the largest, most visible platforms for young people around the world calling on world leaders to honour their responsibilities in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and ending extreme poverty by 2030. The organization has taken its action-based model to Australia, India, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, and Canada, and created a platform for activists to learn about the issues they care most about, take action, and earn rewards for doing so.

Global Citizens have generated commitments and policy announcements from leaders valued at over $37.9 billion that are set to affect the lives of more than 2.25 billion people. This year alone Global Citizens have secured 29 commitments totaling over $2.9 billion that are set to affect the lives of more than 501 million people by 2030.

          U.S. Embassy Warns Americans In U.K. To ‘Keep A Low Profile’ Amid Trump Visitation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

White House freezes Obamacare money

As reported by AOL, an alert issued by the United States Embassy to the United Kingdom in London on Tuesday, July 10, warns U.S. citizens to “keep a low profile” whilst abroad in the greater British Isles during President Trump’s scheduled visit.

The warning comes with the information that organizers expect a chance that British protests against the president could escalate into violence, and that any Americans blatantly identifying themselves as such during those protests could potentially risk physical harm.

Trump is set to arrive in Britain this Thursday, July 12, following NATO meetings and as part of a greater tour around Europe, meeting with various different groups and delegates.

          Theresa May Can't Find the Brexit       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

It must be a fun day to be a Russian intelligence officer, especially if you had anything to do with helping the British decide to exit the European Union.  The Brexit vote is in heavy competition with the election of Donald Trump for the greatest Russian accomplishment in foreign policy since the successful conclusion of World War Two. It has absolutely paralyzed the United Kingdom and will probably shortly bring down the government of Theresa May after having already destroyed David Cameron’s coalition.

The foreign secretary Boris Johnson has resigned today. He follows Brexit Secretary David Davis, who announced his resignation yesterday, as well as his deputy Steve Baker. These men object that after two years of trying to figure out how to leave the European Union, the government is not making a strong enough separation.  They fear that Britain will get the worst of both worlds, losing all the benefits of European integration without receiving the benefits of full autonomy. Parliament, in their minds, will be asked to sign away their right to set policy on some aspects of trade and immigration, while not becoming fully free of the obligations of the European court of justice.

It is likely that Prime Minister May will face a vote of no confidence which she may well not survive. So far, the Tories are acting like this crisis is survivable but the resignation of Johnson has not yet been fully digested. The revolt is coming from the so-called “Hard Brexiteers,” who seem to be having difficulty coming to terms with the troubles they have wrought.  They have the legitimacy of the referendum for separation but little else to bolster their position.

And it’s easy to exaggerate the legitimacy of the Brexit vote in light of recent revelations:

Arron Banks, a British financier who bankrolled the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, has long bragged about his “boozy six-hour lunch” with the Russian ambassador eight months before the vote.

Some also wondered about Mr. Banks’s Russian-born wife and their custom license plate, X MI5 SPY, after the British intelligence agency, MI5. But Mr. Banks always laughed off questions about his ties to the Kremlin.

Now, a leaked record of some of Mr. Banks’s emails suggest that he and his closest adviser had a more engaged relationship with Russian diplomats than he has disclosed.

While Mr. Banks was spending more than eight million British pounds to promote a break with the European Union — an outcome the Russians eagerly hoped for — his contacts at the Russian Embassy in London were opening the door to at least three potentially lucrative investment opportunities in Russian-owned gold or diamond mines.

The United Kingdom so far feels obligated to honor the Brexit vote and leave the European Union by March 29, 2019. But the government evidently cannot figure out how to accomplish this goal without creating devastating consequences.

At some point, the commitment to Brexit should be scrapped. The Brits were trolled into voting for the destruction of their own country along with a weakening of European unity and power. It’s unseemly so see them writhing around trying to make lemonade out of these lemons.

And I say this as an American. We have been trolled, too, and in an even more complete and effective manner.

          Happy as Larry - 22 January 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

New research shows that you may be less influenced by superstitious behavior like walking under ladders or the magic of four-leaf clovers if you're reading about it in another language. And: sometimes not cursing will catch someone's ear even more than a real curse word. Finally, in what sport do you enjoy a glass-off and speck out before getting flushed? Martha brings back a firsthand report from the language of paragliding.

FULL DETAILS

In what sport would you hear the slang terms glass off, speck out, and get flushed? They're all expressions used in paragliding. Glass-off refers to a smooth, effortless takeoff; to speck out is to go so high that you're nearly invisible to those on the ground; to get flushed means to lose lift and be forced to make a landing. The United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association offers a glossary of the slang of free flight. As promised, here's video that Martha shot while getting flushed toward the end of her first paragliding flight. The song is "Fear of Flying," by Pam Delgado, performed by Blame Sally, and used with permission. (By the way, we have no idea who Cindy is, but we hope she said yes.)

A roofer in Virginia Beach, Virginia, has a dispute with his boss over how to pronounce the word roof. Most people pronounce it to rhyme with the word proof, but about 10 percent of the English-speaking world population pronounces roof like the word rough.

A listener in Williamsburg, Virginia, wants to know the correct pronunciation of the condiment known as Worcestershire sauce. The proper pronunciation involves what linguists call haplology, the loss of a syllable next to a similar-sounding one.

This week's puzzle by Quiz Guy John Chaneski involves limericks based on notable news from 2017. For example, how would you finish this one? My dependable British authorities / Say the royals have excellent qualities / Like handsome Prince Harry / Who announced he will marry / Meghan Markle who hails from the ________________.

The piece of playground equipment you slide down goes by several different names, depending on which part of the U.S. you're from: slide, sliding board, sliding plank, and sliding pond.

A Fort Worth, Texas, woman remembers her grandfather used to say You live and learn, then you die and forget it all. She wonders if he made it up. Actually, this phrase goes back to the 1840s and may allude to the brevity of life or to putting trivial matters into perspective.

Our discussion about finding a word that means both nervous but excited prompted several suggestions from listeners. A listener in Melbourne, Australia, contributed another term used in his part of the world: toey. If you're toey, you're full of anxious anticipation--an allusion, perhaps, to a horse pawing at the ground.

A listener in Huntsville, Alabama, says that in her native Scotland, the phrase send out for messages means to send someone to go shopping. The phrase stems from a time when people actually did pick up their postal mail or other messages at the local store.

To eat al desko is a joking term for having lunch at work without leaving the office.

New research published in The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology suggests that people who speak more than one language tend to be less superstitious if they're reading or thinking in a different language.

A San Antonio, Texas, woman wonders about the phrase to ask for your John Henry, meaning to ask for your signature. It's a variant of the far more common phrase, to ask for your John Hancock, a reference to the bold signature of John Hancock, one of the original signers of the U.S. Declaration of Independence.

The slang of paragliding includes the term cu's, also known as cumies, also known as cumulus clouds, which indicate good lift is available. For paragliders, the term cloud street refers to a line of cumulus clouds that stretches for miles, suggesting ideal conditions for flying.

A Los Angeles, California, man says his mother studiously avoided swearing. Instead of a curse word, she substituted the word piffle, which was often even more effective than a four-letter word because it was so unexpected. Piffle is most likely onomatopoetic, suggesting a disgusted exhalation through pursed lips. It's common in the United Kingdom, and figured in the title of the popular 2006 British television program about etymology, Balderdash & Piffle.

Someone does both paragliding and hang gliding is jokingly said to be biwingual. Really!

A woman in Perote, Alabama, wonders about the phrase happy as Larry, meaning very happy. This expression is commonly heard in Britain and Australia. It may derive from a jocular reference to the biblical Lazarus, who presumably would have been happy to be raised from the dead. Or it might be some sort of rhyming slang that evolved from very happy to Larry happy to happy as Larry. But the truth is no one knows who this particular Larry is or why he's so pleased.

Among paragliders, the expression the locals refers not to humans, but to birds. If the locals are able to soar without flapping their wings, then paragliders know that conditions are good for flying.

This episode is hosted by Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett, and produced by Stefanie Levine.

          G25 bimbang pemilihan Johari sebagai speaker Dewan Rakyat      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
MALAYSIAKINI

   

Kumpulan masyarakat sivil, G25 menyatakan kebimbangan mereka hari ini terhadap pemilihan anggota parlimen Sungai Petani, Datuk Johari Abdul sebagai calon speaker Dewan Rakyat.

Kumpulan bekas penjawat tinggi awam itu berkata pemilihan itu 'dibimbangi' memandangkan peranan Johari sebelum ini sebagai  pengarah Biro Tata Negara (BTN) dan ketua whip parlimen PKR.

"Johari adalah bekas pengarah BTN, sebuah agensi kerajaan yang telah banyak dikritik pada masa lalu.

"Lebih membimbangkan, Johari adalah bekas ketua whip PKR di Parlimen - peranan yang jelas menunjukkan partisan dan tidak sepatutnya menyandang jawatan speaker Dewan Rakyat yang mesti neutral terhadap semua perkara," katanya dalam satu kenyataan.

G25 menambah, terdapat calon lain yang lebih layak menjadi speaker Dewan Rakyat seperti bekas hakim Mahkamah Rayuan, Datuk Seri Mohd Hishamudin Yunus dan Datuk Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof sebagai contoh.

Hishamudin dan Ariff, tambah mereka mempunyai rekod prestasi cemerlang untuk menjalankan tugas secara adil.

Bagaimanapun, pelantikan sedemikian akan melanggar manifesto pilihan raya HARAPAN yang telah berjanji bahawa speaker akan dilantik dari kalangan anggota parlimen.

Manifesto itu juga berjanji bahawa speaker Dewan Rakyat perlu meletakkan jawatan mereka dalam parti politik selepas dilantik ke jawatan itu.

Menurut G25, speaker di House of Commons United Kingdom kebiasaannya mengundurkan diri dari parti mereka dan tetap menjarakkan diri daripada isu-isu politik.

"G25 mengulangi keperluan penting dan segera untuk reformasi Parlimen.

"Parlimen adalah cabang ketiga kerajaan dan tidak boleh diperlakukan seperti politik padang bola sepak," ujar mereka.

A Batalha do Vimeiro foi travada no dia 21 de agosto de 1808, durante a primeira invasão francesa de Portugal, no âmbito da Guerra Peninsular (1807 – 1814). Nesta batalha defrontaram-se as forças anglo-lusas comandadas pelo tenente-general Sir Arthur Wellesley e as forças francesas comandadas pelo general Jean-Andoche Junot. A batalha resultou numa vitória para as forças anglo-lusas e determinou o fim da primeira invasão francesa de Portugal.

Antecedentes

O Exército de Observação da Gironda atravessou a Espanha e entrou em Portugal no dia 17 de Novembro de 1807, acompanhado por três divisões espanholas. No dia 30 daquele mês, pelas 09h30, Junot entrava em Lisboa com cerca de 1500 homens, esgotados da violenta marcha que acabavam de fazer. O grosso do exército chegou nos dias seguintes em condições igualmente deploráveis. Não só não houve resistência à invasão como também houve a preocupação das autoridades, seguindo as diretivas reais, não hostilizarem o invasor.
Junot estava a trabalhar para Napoleão Bonaparte (Imperador de França).
Quando eclodiu a revolta em Espanha (2 de Maio de 1808), a posição de Junot tornou-se difícil de sustentar, porque nas tropas espanholas que o tinham acompanhado surgiam indícios de simpatia pela revolta. Em Junho e Julho de 1808, as revoltas surgiram também em Portugal. Elas levaram à decisão de enviar um contingente britânico. Após terem sido coordenados os apoios necessários com a Junta Provisional do Governo Supremo do Reino, que se formara no Porto, uma força expedicionária britânica iniciou o seu desembarque em Lavos, a sul da Figueira da Foz, no dia 1 de agosto. O comando da força era da responsabilidade do tenente-general Sir Arthur Wellesley. Das forças de Bernardim Freire de Andrade, que comandava um corpo de tropas portuguesas vindo do norte em direção à Península de Lisboa, juntaram-se aos britânicos 2592 homens, que formaram o Destacamento Português, sob o comando do tenente-coronel Nicholas Trant.
Informado do desembarque, Junot enviou o general Delaborde, no dia 6 de agosto, com uma força relativamente pequena, com a missão de observar e, se possível, impedir o avanço inimigo. Em consequência, travou-se o Combate da Roliça, no dia 17 de agosto, a sul de Óbidos. Os aliados obrigaram os franceses a retirar, mas estes cumpriram a sua missão, pois deram a Junot o tempo necessário para organizar as suas unidades.
Após o Combate da Roliça, Wellesley dirigiu as suas forças para a região do Vimeiro, com a finalidade de proteger o desembarque das brigadas comandadas pelos brigadeiros-generais Anstruther e Acland. No dia 19, ele tinha ocupado as posições à volta daquela povoação. A 7.ª Brigada tinha desembarcado no dia 19, mas a 8.ª Brigada, no dia 21, só tinha desembarcado metade das tropas. Junot tinha as suas forças concentradas em Torres Vedras. No dia 20, ao fim da tarde, ele dirigiu-se ao encontro das forças anglo-lusas. Pela meia noite, já se ouvia o rumor provocado pelos carros e cavalos, no Vimeiro.

O campo de batalha

A povoação do Vimeiro situa-se na margem direita do Rio Alcabrichel, a 14 km a noroeste de Torres Vedras no distrito de Lisboa e a 8 km a sul da Lourinhã. No sudeste da povoação, existe uma colina que foi ocupada pelas brigadas de Anstruther e Fane. Hoje existe nessa colina um monumento comemorativo do centenário da batalha, mandado erguer pelo rei Dom Manuel II.
O Rio Alcabrichel corre de sul para norte; a seguir ao Vimeiro, curva em direção ao mar (oeste). O seu percurso, pouco antes de chegar ao Vimeiro, marca um vale com ladeiras íngremes na margem esquerda. Nesta, entre o Vimeiro e o mar, forma-se uma linha de alturas, de onde se pode dominar o vale do Maceira e as praias junto à sua foz.
A norte do Vimeiro, entre ravinas difíceis de transpor, situa-se uma oura linha de alturas, por onde se atinge, em estradas secundárias, Ventosa, Santa Bárbara, Casal Novo, Lourinhã. A primeira daquelas povoações marca a posição norte posteriormente ocupada pelas brigadas de Ferguson, Nightingale e Bowes.

As forças em presença

As forças anglo-lusas

O exército de Wellesley estava organizado em brigadas e apresentava um efetivo de 18 878 homens, dos quais 2100 eram portugueses. A sua estrutura era a seguinte:

          Updates on CFS' follow-up on incident of prepackaged frozen vegetable products suspected to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
     The Centre for Food Safety (CFS) of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department said today (July 10) that the Centre has been following up on the incident of prepackaged frozen vegetable products produced by Greenyard Frozen suspected to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and has earlier instructed the local importers concerned to stop sale and recall several kinds of affected products. The CFS has conducted further investigation according to the updated list of recall products provided by the United Kingdom Food Standards Agency and the Food Safety Authority of Ireland and found that the following affected frozen vegetable products have also been imported into Hong Kong. The CFS urged members of the public not to consume the affected products. The trade should also stop using or selling the products concerned immediately if they possess them.

     Details of the products are as follows:

1. Product name: Sainsbury's Carrots, Broccoli and Sweetcorn Microwaveable steam bags
Packing: Four small packs of 135 grams per pack
Importer: The Dairy Farm Company Limited
Best-before date: All codes to January 2020 inclusive

2. Product name: Growers Pride Supersweet Sweetcorn
Packing: 450g per pack
Importer: PARKnSHOP (HK) Limited
Best-before date: All codes to July 2021 inclusive

3. Product name: Tesco Mixed Vegetables with Red Peppers
Packing: 1 kilogram per pack
Importer: China Resources Vanguard (HK) Company Limited
Best-before date: All codes to January 2020 inclusive

4. Product name: Tesco Classic Mixed Vegetables (Resealable)
Packing: 1kg per pack
Importer: China Resources Vanguard (HK) Company Limited
Best-before date: All codes to January 2020 inclusive

     "The CFS' further investigation found that three local importers had imported the above affected products into Hong Kong for sale at their chain supermarkets. The importers concerned have already stopped sale and removed from shelves the affected products and initiated a recall according to the CFS' instructions. Members of the public may call the hotlines of the importers concerned, the Dairy Farm Company Limited at 2299 1133, PARKnSHOP (HK) Limited at 2606 8658 and China Resources Vanguard (HK) Company Limited at 2586 3000, during office hours for enquiries about the recall," a CFS spokesman said.

     In addition, the Centre has received a notification from the Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) of the European Commission that frozen vegetable products produced by Greenyard Frozen are also being recalled due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. According to the information provided by the RASFF, a local importer had imported an affected batch of product. The CFS' investigation confirmed that the product concerned had been imported and sold out.

     Product details are as follows:

Product name: Pinguin Sweet Corn Kernels
Packing: 2.5kg per pack
Importer: Buah Buahan Ltd
Best-before date: June 2, 2019

     "Listeria monocytogenes can be easily destroyed by cooking but can survive and multiply at refrigerator temperature. Most healthy individuals do not develop symptoms or only have mild symptoms like fever, muscle pain, headache, nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea when infected. However, severe complications such as septicemia, meningitis or even death may occur in newborns, the elderly and those with a weaker immune system. Although infected pregnant women may just experience mild symptoms generally, the infection of Listeria monocytogenes may cause miscarriage, infant death, preterm birth, or severe infection in newborns," the spokesman said.

     The spokesman urged consumers not to consume the affected products if they have bought any. The trade should also stop using or selling the products concerned immediately if they possess them.

     The CFS will alert the trade to the incident, and will continue to monitor the cases and take appropriate follow-up action, including making timely announcements on the latest information of the products which need to be recalled. Investigation is ongoing.
          Commission of Inquiry into the Diaphragm Wall and Platform Slab Construction Works at the Hung Hom Station Extension under the Shatin to Central Link Project appointed      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
     A Commission of Inquiry was appointed by the Chief Executive in Council today (July 10) to inquire into the steel reinforcement fixing works and any other works which raise concerns about public safety in respect of the diaphragm wall and platform slab construction works at the Hung Hom Station Extension under the Shatin to Central Link Project implemented by the MTR Corporation Limited. The Commission will also make recommendations on suitable measures with a view to promoting public safety and assurance on the quality of works.

     "Public safety is of paramount importance," the Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, said. "A statutory commission equipped with the full range of powers under the Commissions of Inquiry Ordinance (Chapter 86) is called for to ascertain the facts and circumstances surrounding the alleged problems associated with these works and to recommend appropriate improvement measures."

     Mr Michael John Hartmann, former Non-Permanent Judge of the Court of Final Appeal, has been appointed as Chairman and Commissioner of the Commission, and Professor Peter George Hansford, Professor of Construction and Infrastructure Policy at University College London, has been appointed as Commissioner.

     Mr Hartmann served in the Judiciary in Hong Kong for over 20 years, retiring as Justice of Appeal in 2012. After retirement, he remained a Non-Permanent Judge of the Court of Final Appeal until 2016. He is currently Chairman of the Market Misconduct Tribunal, the Securities and Futures Appeals Tribunal and the Higher Rights Assessment Board. Mr Hartmann specialises in public and administrative law.

     Professor Hansford, a Past President of the Institution of Civil Engineers and a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in the United Kingdom (UK), has over 40 years of experience in the delivery of major infrastructure projects. He was appointed as Chief Construction Adviser to the UK Government from 2012 to 2015, and is currently Professor of Construction and Infrastructure Policy at University College London.

     Mr Hartmann was the Chairman of the Independent Expert Panel established by the Government in 2014 to examine the project management systems and cost control mechanisms of the MTR Corporation Limited in overseeing the project of the Hong Kong Section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link and the monitoring processes of the Government, and Professor Hansford was one of the experts on the Panel.  Both are thus very familiar with the implementation of railway projects in Hong Kong under a concession approach.

     The Terms of Reference of the Commission, as approved by the Chief Executive in Council, are as follows:

     In respect of the diaphragm wall and platform slab construction works at the Hung Hom Station Extension under the MTR Corporation Limited (MTRCL)’s Contract No. 1112 (Contract) of the Shatin to Central Link Project,

(a) (i) to inquire into the facts and circumstances surrounding the steel reinforcement fixing works, including but not limited to those works at locations that have given rise to extensive public concern about their safety since May 2018;

     (ii) to inquire into the facts and circumstances surrounding any other works which raise concerns about public safety; and  

     (iii) to ascertain whether the works in (i) and (ii) above were executed in accordance with the Contract. If not, the reasons therefore and whether steps for rectification have been taken;

(b) to review, in the light of (a) above,

     (i) the adequacy of the relevant aspects of the MTRCL's project management and supervision system, quality assurance and quality control system, risk management system, site supervision and control system and processes, system on reporting to Government, system and processes for communication internally and with various stakeholders, and any other related systems, processes and practices, and the implementation thereof; and

     (ii) the extent and adequacy of the monitoring and control mechanisms of the Government, and the implementation thereof; and

(c) in the light of (b) above, to make recommendations on suitable measures with a view to promoting public safety and assurance on quality of works.

     The Commission will report to the Chief Executive within six months from the date of its appointment or such time as the Chief Executive in Council may allow.

     The Commission of Inquiry was appointed under the Commissions of Inquiry Ordinance (Chapter 86) and the appointment will be published in the Gazette.

     Mr Patrick Chan has been appointed as Secretary to the Commission.

  • The US embassy in London warned Americans in the UK to keep a "low profile" and be aware of their surroundings as President Donald Trump visits in the coming days.
  • Trump is set to visit the UK later this week after he attends a NATO summit in Brussels and before a highly anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

  • The "demonstration alert" issued by the embassy also tells Americans to "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent."
  • The president is scheduled to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth during his visit. 

The US embassy in London warned Americans in the UK to keep a "low profile" and be aware of their surroundings as President Donald Trump visits in the coming days. 

"Numerous demonstrations are being planned for July 12 to 14, 2018, surrounding the visit of the President of the United States to the United Kingdom," the embassy's website states. "The majority of the demonstrations will be focused in central London on July 13, with other events planned for July 12 and 14."

The embassy said these demonstrations were expected to attract large crowds and cause road closures. 

The "Demonstration Alert" issued by the embassy also tells Americans to "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent."

Trump is set to visit the UK later this week after he attends a NATO summit in Brussels and before a highly anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. The president is scheduled to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth during his visit. 

But the president will avoid London almost entirely during his trip, which has been characterized as an attempt to avoid humiliation over the planned protests surrounding his visit. 

One such demonstration, which has generated a particular amount of attention, involves a giant "Baby Trump" balloon that's set to fly over the UK capital.

LONDON: Fatima Nasser’s new business had barely got off the ground when she was accused of being a foreign spy for giving women employment opportunities in Libya, her war-torn home country.
The accusation was a measure of the opposition working women face in the conservative Muslim country, which has been in turmoil since a NATO-backed revolt toppled long-time leader Muammar Qaddafi in 2011.

          Country Singer Luke Combs' Unassuming Appeal Makes Him a Hit      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The first week of June was one of Luke Combs' biggest weeks in his still fledgling career. The 28-year-old taped an outdoor performance for the "CMT Crossroads" series with soul singer Leon Bridges, attended the CMT Awards, released a deluxe version of his debut album and sang in front of tens of thousands of fans at the CMA Fest.   And then immediately after the festival performance, he lost his voice. Put on vocal rest for 10 days, Combs had a No. 1 country album but couldn't perform.   "It stung a little bit," he admitted later after his voice recovered. "It made me, I guess, a bit more vulnerable than I would have liked."   Mostly he was upset about having to reschedule shows and disappointing fans. The Asheville, North Carolina-born singer built his success on his live shows when he was performing more than 200 dates a year in 2016 in college towns all around the Southeast and adding to his fan base one show at a time.   "Imagine you've been working out for a year straight, as hard as you can work out and the last set, the last thing you gotta do is that last week of CMA Fest," Combs said. "It's like the second you're done with it, you're just like laid out on the floor."   Combs has been working at a breakneck speed in the year since his debut album, "This One's for You," was released last year. It spawned three No. 1 country radio singles in a row, the first time that's happened since Sam Hunt did it in 2014. The album's deluxe version, featuring five new songs, sold better in the first week than his original debut record, meaning he's earned himself a lot more fans in just a year. His gold-selling album is the most streamed country album of 2018 and it has spent five nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's country albums chart. Instead of the traditional path to country stardom of writing songs for other people before launching his career as an artist, Combs released his own music and promoted himself to his millennial peers online through the now-defunct social media platform Vine.   "I think that was kind of always my goal: get people to come back and see a show twice and then see it a third time," Combs said. "And now I've got people who have been to 30, 40 shows."   Combs even found his first manager on the road when Chris Kappy saw him perform his now multiplatinum single, "Hurricane," in a Georgia bar in 2015. Kappy, who had no previous management experience, immediately felt a kinship to Combs, as both are large men with oversized personalities and scrappy attitudes.   "We're not the typical norm of what this industry is looking for,'' Kappy said.   Kappy's plan was to just let Combs be himself and let the natural talent win over fans. "I told Luke, 'I just want people to fall in love with you, buddy, and to do that we have to expose you. And that's being vulnerable, that's being humble, that's telling stories.'"   It helped that his first single, "Hurricane," was a great showcase of his deep booming voice with a big hooky chorus. Already signed to a new label called River House Artists, the song was gaining ground on radio when he was added to the Columbia Nashville roster. Sony's promotional muscle behind the song was like adding gasoline to a fire, said Kappy.   His label listened to feedback from radio programmers to give him his second radio No. 1 with "When It Rains It Pours," a cheeky take on a breakup that turned into a lucky streak. But he went back to the well of the emotion-driven love songs with a slight R&B swagger on "One Number Away," his third hit single. All three of his songs have also reached the Top 40 on the pop charts.   Fans connect with Combs' unvarnished approachability and openness. The burly and bearded performer wears the same kind of shirt every time he hits the stage, a short-sleeved black sports shirt made to help fishermen deal with heat and sweat. He's a beer-swigging, tobacco-chewing everyman who is also self-assured enough to sing about the passion of heartbreak and love.   "There's an authenticity in just being who you are and not having an act about it or wear clothes you normally wouldn't wear," Combs said. "I'm just comfortable in my own skin."   Combs is currently opening for Jason Aldean on tour and he'll play shows in the United Kingdom and Europe this fall. But his next big play is the sophomore album, which he's already been writing and recording. He compares the quick success he's had with the first record to an average-looking guy who somehow landed the girlfriend that's out of his league.   "I just try not to think about it too much," Combs said.

          Mahathir protects Zakir Naik, but fCk Chin Peng & Ambiga      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Malaysiakini - Dr M, why are you protecting Zakir Naik? (extracts):




Malaysian PM with alleged terrorist, convicted blackmailer, alleged pilferer

Anonymous 2413471460628504: If there is a formal request from India to extradite preacher Zakir Naik, what is the Malaysian government waiting for?

Unless there is no extradition treaty with India, whether Zakir behaves himself or not in Malaysia is immaterial. We wouldn't want this kind of reason from another country in reply to our request for extradition.

It is not our government's job to decide if Zakir has committed a crime in India. It is for India to decide, and if we think India is incompetent to do so, then we should terminate any extradition treaty we have with them.

Otherwise, please comply with our international treaties and obligations.

Gotcha: Malaysia should not set a bad example by failing to deport Zakir back to India as he is wanted by Indian authorities.

Since the Indian Foreign Ministry has confirmed that a formal request has been made to Malaysia for the extradition of Zakir, it is best that we comply.

It is also pointless for Malaysia to allow a person who allegedly promotes terrorism and racial hate to remain in our peace-loving nation.

6th Generation Immigrant: Hang on, Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, that does not sound right. India had requested we extradite Zakir, and we have a mutual agreement to facilitate that.

Malaysia is also seeking to extradite a number of others – 1MDB-linked Jho Low, former police officer and convicted murderer Sirul Azhar Umar, former Sabah chief minister Musa Aman, et cetera.

How would Mahathir feel if Macau, Australia and United Kingdom answered as you just did in a tit-for-tat diplomacy?

Leave religion out of your decision, Mahathir, your answer will not be anything else but a definite return of Zakir to India.

If he is found innocent in India, he can return to Malaysia with his permanent residency. If he is charged, jailed and fined, we should strip him of his permanent resident status. This is the international rule of law.


Ambiga Sreenevasan

in 2013 Ibrahim Ali and Mahathir wanted to have Ambiga's citizenship stripped for being involved with BERSIH, which Mahathir himself subsequently participated in, wakakaka.

Shouldn't he then strip himself of his own citizenship?

It was in early 2013 that the Star Online reported that, in Laws to protect your citizenship (extracts):

Many individuals, including Ibrahim [Ali], ........ and even former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad have called for Ambiga’s citizenship to be revoked, following her involvement with Bersih.

In reaction, Penang Gerakan leader Baljit Singh demanded for Ibrahim’s citizenship to be revoked, saying the Perkasa chief has committed treason in questioning the “King’s decision to grant a royal audience to Ambiga”.

Earlier this year, Dr Mahathir reportedly said the Government needed to amend the constitution if it wanted to strip the citizenship of lawyers such as Ambiga.

But in the NST, we read Dr M on calls for Zakir Naik's extradition: M'sia not giving in easily (extracts):

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Malaysia would not give in easily just because there were demands made by others.

Responding to questions on controversial Muslim preacher Dr Zakir Naik and India’s request to have him extradited, Dr Mahathir said the government would always ensure it looked into all factors before responding to any demand.

“We do not easily follow the demands of others. We must look at all factors before we respond.


[kaytee note: Mahathir has been renowned for ignoring international treaties including extradition treaty with India. He has recently decided to unilaterally cancel internationally agreed and signed for projects as well as ignoring an international treaty to allow Ong Boon Hwa (Chin Peng) to return home to Sitiawan]


“Otherwise, someone will become a victim,” he said.

A DAP leader had recently questioned if there was a “secret deal” between the Malaysian and Indian government, after Putrajaya said it would not deport Zakir.

Dr Mahathir last week said the cleric would not be handed over to Indian authorities as he had been granted Malaysian permanent resident status.

The prime minister said Zakir, who left India in 2016, would be allowed to stay in the country as long as he was not creating any problem.

However, the decision did not sit well with several groups, who insisted the government return Zakir to India following his alleged tendencies to make racial and religiously insensitive statements.

It was reported that India had made a formal extradition request for Zakir to be returned to the country after accusing him of inciting youngsters to commit terror activities through his hate speeches.

However, Zakir has accused the media in India of subjecting him to a campaign of vilification over the past two years.

He has also pledged to expose fake news about him soon.

          Royal Family celebrates Royal Air Force's 100th Anniversary      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

[United Kingdom] July 11(ANI): A day after the Royal Family celebrated the christening of Prince Louis, the family reunited to mark the 100th Anniversary of the Royal Air Force (RAF).

The family has a long-standing commitment to the Royal Air Force with four generations of the family having served or trained with the United Kingdom's aerial warfare force, and many holding honorary ranks and patronages with RAF charities and associations.

The day began with a service at Westminster Abbey followed by a speech by Queen Elizabeth II at the Buckingham Palace.

Ahead of the speech, the Queen presented a new flag, known as a 'Colour' to the RAF Regiment.

In her speech, the Queen said, "I remember the Battle of Britain being fought in the skies above us, and we shall never forget the courage and sacrifice of that time."

She further remembered her father George VI, who became the first member of the Royal Family to qualify as a Royal Air Force pilot.

The Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke of Cambridge, Duke of York, and Duke and Duchess of Sussex then attended a reception here.

This was an opportunity to meet RAF veterans, serving personnel and their families.

Lastly, the members of the Royal Family watched a presentation of the RAF 100 Relay, which had been carried throughout the United Kingdom for the last 100 days. (ANI)

More than 100 Muslim women are calling for a real European model of inclusion and pluralism giving everyone access to employment and education while not placing an extra burden on women.

lead Participants at a conference on 'Islam and Women' at European Parliament headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, November 2017. Wiktor Dabkowski/Press Association. All rights reserved.

Recently, for the first time, the women’s rights committee of the European Parliament discussed the situation of Muslim women in Europe, including dress restrictions and how recent developments have undermined women’s rights. A collective of more than 100 Muslim women are responding by calling for a real European model of inclusion and pluralism that ensures everyone can have access to employment and education and that doesn’t place an extra burden on women.

According to a recent report by the Open Society Justice Initiative, nearly one in three EU member states have placed legal restrictions on Muslim women’s dress at either local or national level. In addition, bans on headscarves and other Muslim women’s dress by both businesses and public institutions have been increasingly reported in nearly half of the EU countries. This has resulted in preventing these women from accessing jobs. How can this be seriously reconciled with EU principles of non-discrimination and gender equality?

However, there is hope for an inclusive Europe as in most countries, proposals for legal bans have been rejected either by legislators or by the courts. This means that there are many people fighting back against attempts to stigmatise and discriminate against Muslim women, including strong civil society campaigns.

This is all the more important as analysis shows that many of these bans on religious dress, although framed as though they apply to all religious groups equally, in fact clearly and visibly target Muslim women. Indeed, restrictions are often adopted after heated debates on Muslim women’s dress and the presence of Muslims in Europe. The ‘neutrality’ argument is used frequently only as an attempt to legally discriminate against Muslim women. In addition, many far-right parties are increasingly pushing for these bans, using Islamophobic discourses.

While neutrality remains a key principle for our societies, we cannot disconnect its current usage and restrictive policies from the context of generalised suspicion against Muslims, the disproportionate impact of these restrictions on women and the structural dimension of exclusion which has an impact on other areas of life and on how society perceives Muslim women.

It is crucial to be politically bold and embrace diversity by ensuring that all can contribute to our societies with their multiple identities. Inclusive and positive approaches need to be chosen over exclusion and limitations on fundamental rights. This will be a powerful way to counter the most xenophobic parties gaining power in several European countries. It is crucial to be politically bold and embrace diversity… a powerful way to counter the most xenophobic parties gaining power in several European countries.

There are already many positive examples of both private and public employers that have made the choice of inclusion and that are increasingly influencing policy and legal developments in different EU countries. We hope countries and private entities which have adopted a restrictive approach will now follow suit.

EU member states should assess the specific effects of rules on religious dress in public and private institutions on Muslim women. They should also ensure that practices and policies promote fully inclusive workplaces, places of education and public spaces, including by rejecting any new proposals to ban religious clothing in employment and institutions. Why has it been so hard so far to choose inclusion over exclusion in support of women’s emancipation?

In the face of the worrying situation of exclusion targeting a specific group of women in Europe, the European Parliament’s discussion supports the broader feminist solidarity with Muslim women that is gaining ground in Europe. At a time when Muslim women are also victims of violent sexist and racist attacks, we need to acknowledge that the structural discrimination they experience is feeding into racism and sexism.

‘Free’ labour exists when it is guarded by a system of rights and protections. This places the vast majority of migrant and citizen sex workers at the extreme end of unfreedom.

On 2 June, sex workers and activists gathered globally to mark the struggle for sex workers’ rights. International Sex Workers Day is just one day of the year dedicated to the struggle for sex workers. Activists gather on 3 March to mark International Sex Worker Rights Day and on 17 December to mark International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers.

These dates occur because of the historical and ongoing violence against, and exclusion of, sex workers. Sex workers are subject to interpersonal forms of violence, including from police officers and clients, and the structural violence of criminal justice and immigration institutions. They are frequently criminalised or otherwise negatively affected by anti-trafficking laws and policies, and are subject to heightened immigration controls. In the United Kingdom, the Tory government’s hostile environment has created additional layers of institutionalised insecurity for many migrant sex workers, including restrictions on access to housing, healthcare, education, and banking services.

In a recent article I wrote for Feminist Legal Studies, I argue for a Marxist feminist methodology capable or describing and opposing these intersecting exclusions and oppressions as they apply to migrant sex workers in the UK. However, this method can be used to understand the precarious living and working conditions of all sex workers. The fieldwork I am currently conducting with Julia O’Connell Davidson, Jacqueline Sanchez Taylor and Cecily Jones in Jamaica demonstrates this nicely with regard to citizen sex workers.

A Marxist feminist understanding of sex work

My methodological starting point is capitalist relations of (re)production. I believe that the exploitative and alienating relationships we develop with each other and nature as we interact to (re)produce the necessities for life sit at the core of our problem as activists and workers. Our labour, or practical human activity – the work we do for a wage, in the home, and in the community – is being harnessed by capitalism. We are being exploited, alienated, and dispossessed, and this is happening in and through gender, ‘race’, and the law.

We are being exploited, alienated, and dispossessed, and this is happening in and through gender, ‘race’, and the law.

I argue that capitalist relations of (re)production exist on a continuum of unfreedom. At one end of the continuum is ‘free’ labour; the quotation marks signalling that freedom within capitalism cannot exist because we cannot reproduce families, communities, and ourselves without dispossession, exploitation, and alienation. ‘Free’ labour, then, is characterised by the limitation of labour unfreedom. It exists where waged and unwaged labour is embedded in a system of labour and social rights and protections, including a living wage, freedom to change employers and to contest conditions, freedom of movement, access to affordable housing, education, childcare, and eldercare.

In order to understand how we strive for freedom, Marxist feminists reject any approach that privileges ‘structure’ over ‘agency’, ‘experience’ or ‘consciousness’. In other words, because our everyday labour relationships are constitutive of, and are constituted by, capitalist relations of (re)production it is immanently possible for us to collectively contest these very same relations. This is particularly important in the context of sex work and debates about sex work or ‘prostitution’. Sex workers voices are not often heard and academics tend to focus too much on constraints or choice rather than the dynamic interplay between structure and agency.

Unfree migrant and citizen sex workers

What, then, does this tell us about the expression of capitalist legal relations and sex work? To start with migrant sex workers in the UK: immigration law repressively incorporates these workers. Migrant sex workers do not arrive with a visa to work in the sex industry. Heightened policing – through a combination of immigration law, anti-trafficking law, and absent labour and social protections and rights – further pushes sex work into the margins and associates it with ‘other’ jurisdictions and spaces. This legal ‘othering’ is reinforced by media discourses and prevailing gender, sexual, and racial stereotypes in the UK. By this point solidly ‘othered’, this status becomes a justification for their devaluation and abuse by the state, employers, intermediaries, and clients.

Citizen sex workers experience many of the same legal exclusions in the UK as migrant sex workers. Labour law rarely touches the sexual services sector. Citizen sex workers who work in managed environments experience employment precarity. The dominant employment relation in such contexts is false self-employment, and so workers have no certainty of employment, little control over the labour process, and no regulatory protection. While wages can be adequate there is no certainty that a debt relationship between the worker and management will not emerge. Unless sex workers register as self-employed they will not be able to access many social welfare protections that depend on being in paid employment.

Invisibility, devaluation, criminalisation, and state disavowal all combine to allow managers and clients to practice high levels of exploitation, control, and abuse.

As a form of work that often takes place in the ‘private’ sphere (the ‘thick walls’ of the home, apartment, or brothel) it is not seen as ‘real’ work by the employers, clients, or the state. The relationship between sexism, the desire to control female sexuality, and the stigmatisation of sex workers also helps to explain on-going criminalisation and the widespread reluctance to see sex work as a legitimate form of service work. This mix of invisibility, devaluation, criminalisation, and state disavowal all combine to allow managers and clients to practice high levels of exploitation, control, and abuse.

Through conversations and a collaborative workshop with the Sex Worker Association of Jamaica, we have learnt that Jamaican sex workers are also rendered criminals and second-class citizens in a host of ways that do not turn on having illegal status.

If ‘free’ labour exists where all labour – paid and unpaid – is embedded in a system of labour and social rights and protections, we must conclude that the vast majority of (migrant) sex workers globally populate the extreme end of unfreedom. At the same time, Marxist and social reproduction feminists stress the fact that:

“interests and relational dynamics can and do compete with the capitalist imperative. Struggles for access to abortion, childcare, better wages, and healthy drinking water, for example, reshape relations between workers and capital, and those among workers themselves. If successful, they chip away at patriarchal and other forms of relations; if they fail, they tend to reinforce such relations” (Ferguson 2016).

Sex workers and activists in the UK, Jamaica, and globally are discussing and demanding labour ‘freedoms’. They are arguing for individual and collective labour rights in combination with regulation of labour intermediaries, recruitment agencies and brothels/clubs, decriminalisation, social welfare entitlement, and radical restructuring of border controls in recognition that these ‘freedoms’ will transfer a significant amount of power to (migrant) sex workers. In the words of one Jamaican sex worker, it is time to stop “using, abusing, and refusing sex workers”.

          China's Ministry of Education approves termination of more than 200 Chinese-foreign cooperative programs      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

China’s Ministry of Education recently approved the termination of more than 200 Sino-foreign cooperative education programs and jointly managed institutions in what the ministry framed as a move to improve quality and regulatory control. The program closures span a wide range of fields, including business, computer science, education, engineering and health care-related fields, and at least for the most part do not appear to be directly related to ideological imperatives on the part of the Chinese government.

Slightly more than two dozen partnerships involving U.S. universities are included in the list of cooperative programs that have been formally terminated, which is published on the ministry’s website in Chinese. A total of 229 cooperative undergraduate or master’s programs were terminated, plus an additional five jointly managed Sino-foreign educational institutes. The largest number of terminated cooperative programs involved universities in the United Kingdom, followed by Australia, Russia and then the U.S.

As of June there were about 1,090 active Chinese-foreign cooperative institutions and projects at the undergraduate level and above, according to China's Ministry of Education.

The ministry described the recent terminations as "an important achievement in the recent improvement and innovation of regulatory methods in Chinese-foreign cooperation in academic administration" and as a move to "replace the old with the new, optimized, and upgraded."

“In recent years, there has been significant development in Chinese-foreign cooperation in academic administration, which has been effective in promoting reforms in educational systems and mechanisms, making innovations in training models, and serving major state strategies, in turn continuously increasing social approval for and international influence of such cooperation,” the ministry said in a July 4 statement about the terminations (translated from Chinese). “While development has accelerated, problems have appeared in certain institutions and projects, such as insufficient introduction of excellent educational resources, low instructional quality, weak specialized capabilities in academic departments, and lack of content-based development mechanisms. The problems have led to low student satisfaction and poor attractiveness of programs, making it difficult for academic administration to continue.”

"Strengthening withdrawal mechanisms is important for the thorough implementation of the central government’s regulatory powers over Chinese-foreign cooperation in academic administration both during and after their existence," the ministry said.

While the ministry statement stressed issues related to quality and regulatory control, the list of terminated programs from the ministry includes programs that ended for a variety of reasons.

At least some of the programs on the closed list were never implemented. For example, four joint master’s programs between New York University and East China Normal University are included on the terminated program list. NYU has a branch campus in Shanghai operated in partnership with East China Normal.

“During NYU Shanghai’s beginning stages in 2011, NYU and ECNU had also planned to open four joint master's programs, which were subsequently approved by the Chinese MOE,” Yu Lizhong, the chancellor of NYU Shanghai, said in a statement.

“However, these programs were never implemented as both sides were deeply invested in the establishment of NYU Shanghai, the first China-U.S. joint venture research university, in operation for now six years strong. As the umbrella of the successful ECNU-NYU partnership, NYU Shanghai now hosts its own graduate programs, including five joint master’s programs and one joint Ph.D. program, all approved by the MOE. To avoid public confusion, relevant parties agreed to cancel the four previous programs.”

Another program included on the ministry list is a master's in sports management between Ohio University and Beijing Sport University. A spokesman for the Ohio university, Jim Sabin, said such a program was never established. "The two universities did explore a partnership in 2006-2007 in which Ohio University's master's of sports administration degree would be available through Beijing Sport University, but it never came to fruition," Sabin said. He said the partnership between the universities was limited to a short-term series of guest lectures in the lead-up to the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

Another program on the list is a joint undergraduate program in English that the University of Indianapolis began operating with the Ningbo Institute of Technology in 2004. Indianapolis's associate provost for international engagement and shared governance, Jodie Ferise, said the university continues to run undergraduate programs with the Ningbo Institute in international business and finance, but that in renewing its agreement with Ningbo in 2016, it did not seek approval to continue offering the English program because of lower-than-expected enrollment.

"There was no formal notification that we would not be approved for one, and it was not terminated by active edict of the ministry," said Ferise, who described the decision to end the joint English program as being purely about enrollment. "We taught it all the way out to its conclusion.”

Two cooperative master's programs operated by Stevens Institute of Technology, in New Jersey, with the Beijing Institute of Technology -- one in telecommunications management and one in photonics and microelectronics -- were also on the ministry list of terminated programs. A spokeswoman for Stevens, Thania Benios, said via email that the university was "not aware that these programs were approved to be terminated and have not been formally notified of their termination, but it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with our relationship with BIT." Asked whether the university is still operating these programs or others with BIT, Benios said Tuesday she would have additional information on Wednesday, after Inside Higher Ed's deadline.

Michael Gow, a senior research fellow at the University of Nottingham's China Policy Institute who researches transnational higher education in China, said the list published by the Ministry of Education is a cumulative list of terminations, reflecting all program closures from 2006 to 2018.

“Since 2007, the MOE has been indicating its concern at the predatory market nature of many foreign university activities in China, including comments directed at official Sino-foreign collaborations,” Gow said in an email, adding that “125 programs were closed between 2006-2015, with a further 104 closed in 2016-18. The majority of these look like programs which were poorly conceived, hastily established. Many may never have become operational. Also, the majority were established 2001-2004.”

“It’s important to understand the mechanism for closing Sino-foreign programs,” Gow added. “They are granted licenses with an expiry date, for example 2015. If this is a 4-year [undergraduate] program, the last permitted intake will be in 2011, with license expiry set to allow any students to complete study and graduate. So all of these programs closed will have either (a) been terminated by mutual consent and only where all enrolled students are not affected by the closure or (b) will agree to close with time give[n] for a winding-up to ensure students are not affected.”

More broadly, Gow said, "it seems clear that tolerance of poorly run programs, established as de facto recruitment and pathway channels, are being eradicated from the Sino-foreign landscape. The authorities want genuinely collaborative programs that help Chinese universities develop teaching and internationalize their campus environments, alongside any accompanying research collaboration that might develop between partners. They are not willing to allow partnerships which foreign universities establish solely for the purposes of charging high fees and/or recruiting Chinese students on 2+2. Certainly, [the] trend since 2007/08 is that all [undergraduate] programs, with few exceptions, are for dual degree awards, which allows for greater oversight by the Chinese authorities on degree quality. So fewer foreign-only degrees and Chinese-only degrees (where foreign partners provide certificate or faculty for teaching), and none approved which specifically mention pathway conditions (i.e. 1+3 or 2+2).”

          Trump Heads to a Melting Europe      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
President Trump continues to dominate the media, both traditional and new. No other politician has done this so consistently and for so long. One cannot switch on the ol' tube, the even older radio, or engage in a little internet or social media surfing without seeing the Trumpian dominance. It's absolutely amazing.

Trump announced his pick for a new justice on the SCOTUS, a really rather uncontroversial one which the left is making into a controversy, and, once again, having a melt-down. Brett Kavanaugh seems like a perfectly qualified and experienced judge, certainly much more so than, say, Justice Sotomayor, a progressive darling who sits on the SCOTUS these days. But, of course, the fake outrage machine has been put into high gear, once again, assuring all who would listen and even those who do not, that, once again, the WORLD IS COMING TO AN END! Yawn. I am so tired of the END OF THE WORLD . . . I have seen this movie so many times. Anyhow, I hope the Republicans in the Senate and a couple of sane of Democrats--Surely, they must exist?--can rouse themselves to putting Kavenaugh on the SCOTUS quickly, and spare us all the drama. I know, too much to hope for . . .

Well, The Donald heads off for the Old World. It's an Old World witnessing a melt-down of the elites who have misgoverned that place since the end of WWII. The NATO meeting in Brussels is being attended by some key zombies of that elite. I refer, in the main, to Merkel and May. Both of these ladies are in severe political trouble, and facing an end to their careers thanks to messes of their own making. Merkel, of course, is the mother of the current invasion of Europe by Muslim and African "refugees" who have ripped apart what was left of the continent's social fabric and traditions. Her decision to admit over one million "refugees" has plunged Germany and the EU into an existential crisis with no easy end in sight. Merkel's days are numbered, let's just hope Germany's aren't, too.

Theresa May must be one of the most incompetent and clueless politicians on the scene. May has no business being the PM of a major country. She just can't get on the right side of history no matter how many times that side is pointed out to her. She insists on making a series of "own goals." She is a classic pro-EU drudge. When her own country rejected the EU in a referendum, which the elites opposed holding for years and years, May just didn't know what to do (see here and here for example). She could not understand how the ground had shifted. As I wrote back in April, 2016,
At the risk of being reprimanded and corrected by this blog's one or two British readers, I offer that the force driving the pro-Brexit movement is not solely or even mostly about economics, or finance, or currency exchange rates. It is about something much, much more important. It is about reclaiming the soul of Britain; preserving and restoring that which made Britain, notably England, one of the world's greatest countries, a nation of stunning consequence. It is about deciding whether the great British traditions and innovations that have made our modern world are worth saving or should be discarded . . . For me as an outsider, a person with zero British blood, and no family ties to the UK (although I do like British cheese), what's driving the anti-EU movement in Britain is the need to save the country, or what's left of it. Perhaps without the EU and its courts and mandates, British common sense can prevail, and the UK be saved, or at least England--and if the Scots want to stay in the EU, they should have another referendum and swap London's "rule" for that of Brussels, that'll teach 'em.
What's happening in the UK now re Brexit, is exactly what I wrote about here,
Literally within hours of the "Leave" victory in the Brexit referendum, the elite counterattack began. First, lots of stories in British and other media that, well, there is no rush to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty that would start the clock on the British exit from the EU, that Scotland--of course-- doesn't accept leaving the EU and would rather leave the United Kingdom (and tie itself to the mast of the sinking EU ship), and, of course, the ol' lefty/elite standby, my favorite, the people are too stupid to know what they want. Yeah, yeah . . .
In a similar vein, we saw a story in the Washington Post that claimed, "The British are frantically Googling what the E.U. is, hours after voting to leave it." Those poor, poor dumb Brits. After having run about half the world, founding the greatest countries on earth, creating modern democracy, saving the world from the Nazis, fighting the Communists and other assorted evil-mongers, and, by the way, having spent over four decades in the EU, the great unwashed British masses didn't know what the EU is when they voted on whether to leave it! Tsk! Tsk! Shame! Shame! The problem, of course, is, as is the case with so much progressive narrative these days, that story is false . . . The best most robust and thorough example of the sort of elitist thinking that has produced Brexit and Trump comes, once again, from the Washington Post. In an incredibly tone deaf, snobbish, and just plain wrong piece, a previously unknown guest columnist by the name of Emily Badger, tells us that, "Brexit is a reminder that some things just shouldn’t be decided by referendum."
In other words, the people got it wrong. May has never quite given that up, and has, at best, dragged her feet in getting the UK out of the EU. She has engaged in an absurd negotiating tactic with the EU, one in which she would have the UK leave the EU but remain subject to its rules and regulations--WHAT? Well, now her cabinet is melting, with Trump look alike Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, resigning with a Trumpian resignation letter signature ceremony.  May is going to NATO and later dealing one-on-one with Trump in London in a greatly weakened state. I doubt Trump will take her too seriously, no matter how many "baby Trump" blimps fill the UK skies.

On that blimp and the protests against Trump, a few parting words. What we are seeing, in essence, is the old "Ban the Bomb" folks back on the streets. They call themselves something like the "No War Coalition" but can't quite name the war they oppose, you know, the one that Trump started. He, of course, gets no credit for trying to end the Korean war and its nuclear threat, or for dismantling ISIS and its war machine. Dopey British actors, such as Mark Rylance, are involved in the protests which include some nonsense about abuse of migrants in the US, and which they assure us are being done for the benefit of people in America. Ah, the "elites." The last remaining comics left.

Trump will dominate. A safe prediction.

But at only $660,000, it will take the company just 18 minutes to pay it off.

The fine was levied by the United Kingdom’s data watchdog, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), reports CNBC. The ICO fined Facebook because they said the company failed to safeguard users’ data and it also was not transparent about how user data was harvested by others. But though the company received the maximum fine allowable by law–it was only £500,000 (about $660,000). As Business Insider points out, Facebook makes around $37,037 a minute, meaning it will take the social media giant just 18 minutes to earn enough to pay off its fine.

          Old-Time Elegance In South Kensington      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Bella. Bellissima.
South Kensington, con tutto il suo fascino British. La zona residenziale con le case vittoriane a schiera di un bianco abbagliante. Fila dopo fila di residenze immacolate e curatissimi piccoli giardini in stile Mary Poppins, la cui compiuta urbanizzazione risale alla seconda metà dell'800.
Qui dove si fondono storia, cultura, eleganza e glamour come in nessun altra zona della capitale inglese.
Uno stile così raffinato. sobrio, ordinato, assolutamente esclusivo, con quel fascino che hanno gli abiti sartoriali, i tacchi a spillo e i party super cool. 
E' la zona dei musei, dei college dai nomi altisonanti e dei palazzi da fiaba, a partire dal più noto di tutti, Kensington Palace residenza ufficiale della monarchia britannica per quasi due secoli e dimora di molti esponenti della Famiglia Reale inglese in epoca moderna, dalla principessa Diana agli attuali occupanti William, Kate e prole.
Immerso nei famosi Kensington Gardens, noti anche come i giardini di Peter Pan, dove i colori estivi sono così sgargianti su un prato verdissimo e un'erba pulita di un colore assoluto, sotto un cielo azzurro pastello.
Indosso un abito lungo a righe technicolor, un altro pattern immancabile del guardaroba estivo... quelle verticali, nello specifico, che sfinano la silhouette e donano un’aria disinvolta al look, respirando tutta la storia, il fascino e la regalità del quartiere più esclusivo di Londra.
(Clicca qui e qui per vedere tutti i maxi dress più belli di stagione).
(Clicca qui per vedere un mio diverso post dove sto indossando un maxi dress stampa floreale).

South Kensington is one of the more elegant corners of London and radiates the same elegant charm that many associate with the French capital.
Thoroughly European with stucco-fronted white terraces, packed with Victorian architectural gems, green squares, and leafy streets, it is without a doubt one of the most sought-after and affluent areas in London.
Home to some of London’s most-loved and internationally renowned museums and a number of international schools, it’s one of the best cultural hubs in the city too.
Kensington emotes regal elegance, stylish and authentically British. 
Burn off lunch by strolling around Kensington Palace. There’s never been a better time than now to visit it:
the summer colors are so bold on a green lawn with a clean grass of an absolute color, under a pastel blue sky.
Whether you're hoping to join in the family trail or mooch around the gardens, there’s no better way to momentarily live like a royal than in the tranquility of Kensington Gardens.
I'm wearing a striped maxi dress, another trendy pattern of this summer wardrobe
, that slimming the silhouette and give a relaxed appeal to my outfit, I feel like I'm fully immersed in the charming atmosphere of these elegant streets with their brights white architecture, in the most exclusive neighborhood of London.

          Musa Aman akan pulang tidak lama lagi, kata Fuzi      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

 
KPN berkata tiada keperluan untuk menghantar pasukannya ke UK bagi mengambil kenyataan bekas ketua menteri Sabah itu.
 
 
 
Fuzi Harun turut menafikan penglibatannya dengan mesej WhatsApp berhubung Naib Presiden MIC S A Vigneswaran mengugut pemimpin MIC menyokongnya sebagai calon presiden.


KUALA LUMPUR: Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun berkata pihaknya yakin bekas ketua menteri Sabah Tan Sri Musa Aman akan pulang ke negara ini dalam masa terdekat.

Ketua polis negara itu berkata, disebabkan itu pihaknya berfikir tidak ada keperluan untuk menghantar pasukan ke United Kingdom (UK) bagi mengambil kenyataan Musa.

“Kita dah ‘alert’ pihak berkenaan termasuk rakan kita di UK. Kita juga sedang menunggu kepulangan beliau,” katanya pada sidang medianya pada Program Derma Darah Sempena Hari Peringatan Polis ke-211 di Bukit Aman hari ini.

Fuzi berkata Musa dikehendaki oleh pihak polis berhubung laporan yang dibuat ke atasnya.
“Tindakan-tindakan perlu untuk lengkapkan siasatan, jadi kita tunggu kepulangan beliau,” katanya.

Sebelum ini, dilaporkan polis sedang memburu Musa berhubung satu laporan ugutan jenayah terhadap Tuan Yang Terutama (TYT) Sabah Tun Juhar Mahiruddin.

Musa selepas itu manafikan dirinya beliau melarikan diri daripada disiasat pihak berkuasa negara ini dan sebaliknya mendakwa sedang berada di UK untuk menjalani rawatan.

Sementara itu, Fuzi turut mengulas mengenai dakwaan yang tersebar menerusi WhastApp yang mendakwa Naib Presiden MIC Tan Sri S A Vigneswaran mengugut pemimpin MIC untuk menyokongnya sebagai calon presiden dan namanya dikaitkan dengan perkara itu.

“Saya dukacita nama saya kaitkan dengan pemilihan MIC. Yang mana kata dari saya itu semua palsu.

“Saya tak boleh terlibat, neutral, non partisan kecuali melibatkan isu-isu jenayah. Apa yang didakwa, dihebahkan menerusi WhatsApp tak benar sama sekali,” katanya.

Fuzi berkata, apa yang diketahuinya, tidak ada laporan polis dibuat mengenai perkara berkenaan.
“Mungkin terbaru ada laporan dibuat pegawai di lapangan,” katanya.

Menerusi WhatsApp yang tersebar, Fuzi didakwa membalas WhatsApp yang tidak diketahui pengirimnya bahawa pihaknya sedang menjalankan siasatan berhubung ugutan dibuat oleh Vigneswaran terhadap ketua bahagian dan cawangan MIC bagi menyokongnya sebagai calon presiden dalam pemilihan parti itu akan datang.

Mengulas mengenai dakwaan bekas Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak bahawa Pengarah Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Komersil Bukit Aman Datuk Seri Amar Singh Ishar Singh tidak mengikut prosedur manual dalam merampas harta berkaitan 1MDB, Fuzi berkata afidavit perkara berkenaan telah dikemukakan oleh pegawainya.

“Kita akan beri maklumbalas mengikut afidavit,” katanya.

          How Online Communities of People With Long-Term Conditions Function and Evolve: Network Analysis of the Structure and Dynamics of the Asthma UK and British Lung Foundation Online Communities      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Background: Self-management support can improve health and reduce health care utilization by people with long-term conditions. Online communities for people with long-term conditions have the potential to influence health, usage of health care resources, and facilitate illness self-management. Only recently, however, has evidence been reported on how such communities function and evolve, and how they support self-management of long-term conditions in practice. Objective: The aim of this study is to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying online self-management support systems by analyzing the structure and dynamics of the networks connecting users who write posts over time. Methods: We conducted a longitudinal network analysis of anonymized data from 2 patients’ online communities from the United Kingdom: the Asthma UK and the British Lung Foundation (BLF) communities in 2006-2016 and 2012-2016, respectively. Results: The number of users and activity grew steadily over time, reaching 3345 users and 32,780 posts in the Asthma UK community, and 19,837 users and 875,151 posts in the BLF community. People who wrote posts in the Asthma UK forum tended to write at an interval of 1-20 days and six months, while those in the BLF community wrote at an interval of two days. In both communities, most pairs of users could reach one another either directly or indirectly through other users. Those who wrote a disproportionally large number of posts (the superusers) represented 1% of the overall population of both Asthma UK and BLF communities and accounted for 32% and 49% of the posts, respectively. Sensitivity analysis showed that the removal of superusers would cause the communities to collapse. Thus, interactions were held together by very few superusers, who posted frequently and regularly, 65% of them at least every 1.7 days in the BLF community and 70% every 3.1 days in the Asthma UK community. Their posting activity indirectly facilitated tie formation between other users. Superusers were a constantly available resource, with a mean of 80 and 20 superusers active at any one time in the BLF and Asthma UK communities, respectively. Over time, the more active users became, the more likely they were to reply to other users’ posts rather than to write new ones, shifting from a help-seeking to a help-giving role. This might suggest that superusers were more likely to provide than to seek advice. Conclusions: In this study, we uncover key structural properties related to the way users interact and sustain online health communities. Superusers’ engagement plays a fundamental sustaining role and deserves research attention. Further studies are needed to explore network determinants of the effectiveness of online engagement concerning health-related outcomes. In resource-constrained health care systems, scaling up online communities may offer a potentially accessible, wide-reaching and cost-effective intervention facilitating greater levels of self-management.

          GBP / USD. 10th of July. The resignations of David Davis and Boris Johnson dumped the pound sterling      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

4-hour timeframe

analytics5b44621d4c39d.png

Amplitude of the last 5 days (high-low): 92p - 79p - 71p - 87p - 174p.

The average amplitude for the last 5 days is 101p (89p).

In the United Kingdom, a political crisis is brewing. Yesterday, it became known that Foreign Minister Boris Johnson and the Minister for Brexit David Davis decided to leave their posts. Both politicians have expressed negative opinions about the policy of Theresa May and believe that her plan to exit the country from the EU is not feasible. Thus, the authority of Theresa May collapses before her eyes and it will be very difficult for her to stay in power. Johnson and Davis took an active part in the UK withdrawal procedure from the EU and their departure is a signal that very few members of Parliament agree with May's policy. A little later, Theresa May warned the Parliament that the country should prepare for any Brexit scenario, including "hard". Thus, the chances of a "soft" scenario are melting away. Already the former Minister for Brexit David Davis believes that Brussels can make new demands for concessions, considers it unlikely that Britain will leave the Customs Union and the common market and is against the "soft" scenario of Brexit. Thus, in the United Kingdom political chaos reigns now, and the pound sterling, just beginning to restore its positions against the dollar, may again collapse into the abyss. The results of the referendum two years ago showed that about half of the country's citizens do not support the idea of secession from the EU. Approximately the same alignment of forces is present in the British Parliament and even within the Conservative Party. May in the early elections failed to form a majority, and now her political positions are deteriorating every day. In general, in the medium term, the pound's positions again look depressing, and traders now need to closely monitor not only the regular speeches and statements of Trump but also the news from the Parliament of Great Britain.

Trading recommendations:

On Tuesday, the currency pair GBP / USD fell back slightly but remained below the Kijun-Sen line. Thus, shorts are now relevant for small lots (since there is no "dead cross" yet) with targets of 1,3181 and 1,3156.

Buy-positions will again become relevant only after the bulls are fixed above the critical line with targets of 1.3310 and 1.3351. However, given the latest news from the UK, this scenario is now considered unlikely.

In addition to the technical picture, one should also take into account the fundamental data and the time of their release.

          Indiana Jones 5 Pushed Back To 2021      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
They had better hurry up because Harrison Ford isn't getting any younger!

Here are some possible titles for the upcoming Geriatric Jones film:

Raiders of the Lost Glasses
Temple of Checkers
The False Teeth Crusade
Kingdom of the Scary Teenagers

From JoBlo

Those looking forward to Disney's INDIANA JONES 5 will have to wait just a bit longer to set out on another adventure with Harrison Ford's bullwhip-wielding rogue, as the studio has announced that the film has been moved from July 10, 2020 for a July 9. 2021 debut. As it happens, the film was supposed to shift into production in the United Kingdom in April of 2019, though scheduling conflicts and scripting issues seem to have "kalimaed" those plans. Never fear, though. Spielberg is still set to direct and Ford is reportedly looking forward to going on yet another dangerous mission as Disney plunders the series for more cash.

Furthermore, INDIANA JONES 5 isn't the only film from the studio that's being moved. As a part of the Indy announcement, the House of Mouse has also revealed that Dwayne Johnson's JUNGLE CRUISE will now set sail in theaters on Oct. 11, 2019, while Angelina Jolie's MALEFICENT 2 will cast a spell in cinemas on May 29, 2020. Furthermore, MARY POPPINS RETURNS starring Emily Blunt will now open on December 19th as opposed to its original Christmas Day release date.

Adjust your calendars as needed, and hold tight for when Disney reveals more about INDIANA JONES 5: THE SEARCH FOR MORE MONEY. Heh, that's not really what it's called, but I can't resist a good SPACEBALLS reference, and neither should you.

          11 things you'll hardly ever see in the United States      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

  • America has plenty to offer, but there are many things you can only find outside the United States.
  • They include food items like brown sauce and bizarre sports like sepak takraw.
  • We chose 11 of our favorite things you usually won't find in America.

The United States has plenty of good things going for it — from food to sports to culture — but it doesn't have everything.

Most Americans have never tasted the wonders of brown sauce from the UK, for example, and they've probably never seen a high-flying match of sepak takraw, a sport popular in Southeast Asia.

Here's a sampling of 11 things that you usually won't find in America:

Brown sauce

HP

People from the United Kingdom are familiar with brown sauce, a condiment similar to American steak sauce that's available at many restaurants. HP Sauce's brown sauce, a tangy variety made from tomatoes and vinegar, is especially popular.



Sinks with two faucets

YouTube/VideoBlocks

In most places, including the United States, sinks have just one faucet. In the United Kingdom, it's common for them to have two, one for hot water and one for cold. 



Subway delay certificates

In the United States, you can blame public transportation delays for making you late to work, but that doesn't mean you'll get any sympathy from your boss.

But in two countries, Germany and Japan, railway companies issue official delay certificates to passengers who were delayed by five minutes or more during their commutes. The documentation can then be presented at work or school as a valid reason for one's tardiness.

          Many Rivers to Cross: The Recognition of LGBTQI Asylum in the UK      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Abstract
The Refugee Convention was not written with the persecution of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, and intersex (LGBTQI) people in mind. This article shows the dilemmas this creates for LGBTQI asylum seekers and their advocates when establishing the case for protection. It uses the United Kingdom (UK) experience as an example and brings the literature on this topic up to date with reference to recent cases with implications for LGBTQI applicants. While there has been a welcome shift to recognize that LGBTQI persecution is a legitimate basis for asylum, contradictions and tensions between United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, European, and UK guidelines and instruments, as well as between UK policy and practice, have resulted in a lack of consistency and fairness in the treatment of LGBTQI asylum seekers. The article identifies three specific areas of concern and goes on to show what happens when they converge, using a case that exemplifies some of the problems – AR (AP), against a decision of the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) [2017] CSIH 52. It concludes by suggesting a shift in the focus of questioning, from the identity of the asylum seeker to the persecution in the country of origin, as a possible basis for fairer treatment of LGBTQI asylum claims.

          Filling Gaps and Verifying Facts: Assumptions and Credibility Assessment in the Australian Refugee Review Tribunal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Abstract
This study investigates the assumptions made by decision makers in Australia when adjudicating claims for refugee status and/or complementary protection. By analysing 50 randomly selected cases of the Refugee Review Tribunal, it provides a systematic evaluation of the frequency and importance of assumptions made by Australian Tribunal members, partly replicating an earlier United Kingdom study published in this journal. As a multidisciplinary team of lawyers and psychologists, the authors investigate how Tribunal members’ assumptions about human behaviour pervade credibility assessments, and how they shape overall decision making in the asylum context. This study examines the extent to which Tribunal members take account of credibility guidelines and the psychological evidence base to give protection applicants the benefit of the doubt when their claims cannot be verified. Since asylum seekers’ futures are determined by the outcome of these decisions, it is argued that the Tribunal should provide a greater level of predictability and consistency in the approach taken in the assessment of their cases.

As Trump prepares to visit the United Kingdom on Thursday following the NATO summit in Belgium, cheeky UK protesters are trying to push Green Day's 2004 hit "American Idiot" back to the top of the charts to welcome him. 

Though it's not exactly subtle, attempting to push the George W. Bush-era song to number one in the UK is still a tad more low-key than the other protest that's garnered headlines surrounding this trip: the giant Trump blimp that will float along the London skyline.  Read more...

The US/UK tax treaty has specific language in it for 'lump-sum' payments, Article 17 paragraph 2, but it says nothing at all about anything that is not 'lump-sum' having to be periodic. So any form of withdrawal that is not lump-sum should therefore qualify for the 0% UK withholding rate under the treaty. (The only place 'periodic' appears is in relation to divorce maintenance payments.) Well, that's my armchair-lawyer reasoning, anyway.


I've been reading the tax treaty again, but this time I thought I should read the technical notes as well

https://www.treasury.gov/resource-cente ... eus-uk.pdf



A couple of things caught my eye in the notes for Article 17.



In the note for Paragraph 1, it says "While the term "pension" generally would include both periodic and lump-sum payments, paragraph 2 of the Article provides specific rules to deal with lump-sum payments, so they are not subject to the general rule of paragraph 1". So, the implication is that there are no specific rules to deal with periodic payments. They don't define what periodic payments are and as you rightly said, there's no mention in the treaty itself (apart from divorce, etc). I don't know if the IRS have a definition of periodic payments elsewhere in the same way as the do for lump sums - I haven't found one yet.



The note for Paragraph 2 is (in its entirety)

Paragraph 2 is intended to deal with a particular type of double non-taxation that arose under the prior Convention because the United Kingdom does not tax lump-sum distributions from pension funds. Under the prior Convention, a lump-sum payment was treated in the same way as any other pension, and was taxable only in the country of residence of the beneficial owner. Accordingly, a person who anticipated receiving a lump-sum distribution from a U.S. pension scheme with respect to employment in the United States could avoid U.S. withholding tax on the distribution by establishing residence in the United Kingdom for the year in which he received the distribution. The person would not be subject to tax in either the United States or the United Kingdom with respect to the lump-sum distribution, resulting in a significant windfall.



Paragraph 2 prevents this unanticipated benefit by providing that, notwithstanding the exclusive residence-country taxation of paragraph 1, any lump-sum payment derived by a resident of a Contracting State from a pension scheme established in the other Contracting State shall be taxable in that other State.




I remember this loophole being closed but I never fully appreciated why the loophole existed in the first place. The salient point is that the United Kingdom does not tax lump-sum distributions from pension funds. Can you explain this to me? I guess I know less about UK pensions than I do about 401(k)s.



I still intend following up with Fidelity, basing my argument on the definition of "lump-sum" but I want to get all my ducks in a row first.
          Reinstate Melaye’s security aides, Senate tells police, NSCDC      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Senate has called on the Nigeria Police and the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps to reinstate the security detail withdrawn from the lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye, saying his life is in danger.


The upper chamber of the National Assembly, however, rejected the call by Melaye that police deployment of 30,000 men in Ekiti State to monitor the governorship election on Saturday should be investigated.

Melaye, at the plenary on Wednesday, raised a point of order to condemn the police for deploying such a huge number of men in a state for an election when Nigerians were being killed by armed herdsmen and militias in other states.

He said, “I read with fear that 30,000 policemen were drafted to Ekiti to observe, monitor and provide security for the governorship election. I wonder why the crises in Zamfara, Dapchi, Chibok, Taraba, Benue, Jos have not attracted 30,000 policemen, where Nigerians have been consistently killed.”

Interrupting Melaye, Senator Oluremi Tinubu raised a point of order to point out that the Kogi senator was not in the seat allotted to him and his motion should not be entertained.
Melaye had recently demanded the relocation of his seat from the majority All Progressives Congress section of the chamber to the minority Peoples Democratic Party section.

Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the session, however, argued that the presiding officer was empowered to exercise discretion to recognise a lawmaker from any sitting position.

Melaye continued, “Election is important but not more than the lives of Nigerians. I am bringing this to the notice of the Senate because we swore before men and God to uphold the content and letters of the Constitution. The United Nation, the United States, the United Kingdom, international organisations and civil societies must seriously observe the election in Ekiti.

“Not only that; as part of my prayers, the police need to furnish this Senate with service numbers and names of the 30,000 officers deployed in Ekiti as well as where they were deployed from and where they were deployed in. As I speak this morning, the Government House in Ekiti is under a siege by the Nigeria Police. The campaign officer of the PDP candidate is surrounded by policemen. We cannot, as senators, sit down and allow democracy to become ‘militocracy.’ If we die defending the Constitution and human rights, we have died well.”

The senator also announced that the security operatives attached to him had been withdrawn since he had a case with the police. He said efforts by him to get security detail from the police and other security agencies failed.

Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the plenary, put the prayers to voice vote. Before then, he described the issue of “personal safety” of Melaye as “critical.”
“He said his security was withdrawn and his life is under threat. It is not something we will gloss over,” Ekweremadu stated.

The ESO Supernova will also continue to host the travelling exhibition Our Place In Space, which explores where humanity fits in the grand scheme of our Universe using Hubble-inspired artworks and installations.

The programme also lists all the available tours of the ESO Supernova, in which ESO astronomers and engineers take audiences through some of the biggest questions in astronomy. There will be opportunities for audiences to discover what kind of objects populate our Universe, from planets like the Earth to strange objects like black holes. Some guided tours also give rare insight into the history and future of ESO and allow visitors to explore the intricate architecture of ESO’s buildings.

A printed version of the July–September programme is available, and will soon be distributed to various tourism outlets, hotels, and other partners.

ESO

ESO is the foremost intergovernmental astronomy organisation in Europe and the world’s most productive ground-based astronomical observatory by far. It has 15 Member States: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Finland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, along with the host state of Chile and with Australia as a strategic partner. ESO carries out an ambitious programme focused on the design, construction and operation of powerful ground-based observing facilities, enabling astronomers to make important scientific discoveries. ESO also plays a leading role in promoting and organising cooperation in astronomical research. ESO operates three unique world-class observing sites in Chile: La Silla, Paranal and Chajnantor. At Paranal, ESO operates the Very Large Telescope, the world’s most advanced visible-light astronomical observatory, and two survey telescopes. VISTA works in the infrared and is the world’s largest survey telescope and the VLT Survey Telescope is the largest telescope designed to exclusively survey the skies in visible light. ESO is a major partner in ALMA, the largest astronomical project in existence. And on Cerro Armazones, close to Paranal, ESO is building the 39-metre Extremely Large Telescope, the ELT, which will become “the world’s biggest eye on the sky”.

I remember this loophole being closed but I never fully appreciated why the loophole existed in the first place. The salient point is that the United Kingdom does not tax lump-sum distributions from pension funds. Can you explain this to me?

Honestly, no I cannot. It is as mysterious to me as to you.



I managed to drag this up with a bunch of Googling, but even here there doesn't seem to be much explanation, just a note that there used to be some special treatment in UK tax law for lump sums from non-UK pensions, but there now is not, so whatever reasoning there is in the treaty technical explanation presumably no longer applies:
Under current law, individuals whose foreign pension savings relate wholly to periods of non-UK residence with no UK working can usually draw them in a single lump sum (assuming this is permitted by the scheme) with no UK tax applying to the lump sum withdrawal. However, a significant change is set out in the draft Finance Bill clauses, such that from 6 April 2017 any lump sum paid to a UK tax resident is potentially to be liable to UK tax in full.

Potentially liable to tax is interesting. Does this mean that this is a tax treaty override, or that treaty protection still applies to protect against UK tax? Article 17 paragraph 2 is not an exception to the 'saving clause' in Article 1 paragraph 5(a), but generally only the US wields the 'saving clause'. Shrug.



Clear as mud, eh? Luckily we are not taking lump-sums here.
           Muslim women’s rights are also women’s rights      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

More than 100 Muslim women are calling for a real European model of inclusion and pluralism giving everyone access to employment and education while not placing an extra burden on women.

lead Participants at a conference on 'Islam and Women' at European Parliament headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, November 2017. Wiktor Dabkowski/Press Association. All rights reserved.

Recently, for the first time, the women’s rights committee of the European Parliament discussed the situation of Muslim women in Europe, including dress restrictions and how recent developments have undermined women’s rights. A collective of more than 100 Muslim women are responding by calling for a real European model of inclusion and pluralism that ensures everyone can have access to employment and education and that doesn’t place an extra burden on women.

According to a recent report by the Open Society Justice Initiative, nearly one in three EU member states have placed legal restrictions on Muslim women’s dress at either local or national level. In addition, bans on headscarves and other Muslim women’s dress by both businesses and public institutions have been increasingly reported in nearly half of the EU countries. This has resulted in preventing these women from accessing jobs. How can this be seriously reconciled with EU principles of non-discrimination and gender equality?

However, there is hope for an inclusive Europe as in most countries, proposals for legal bans have been rejected either by legislators or by the courts. This means that there are many people fighting back against attempts to stigmatise and discriminate against Muslim women, including strong civil society campaigns.

This is all the more important as analysis shows that many of these bans on religious dress, although framed as though they apply to all religious groups equally, in fact clearly and visibly target Muslim women. Indeed, restrictions are often adopted after heated debates on Muslim women’s dress and the presence of Muslims in Europe. The ‘neutrality’ argument is used frequently only as an attempt to legally discriminate against Muslim women. In addition, many far-right parties are increasingly pushing for these bans, using Islamophobic discourses.

While neutrality remains a key principle for our societies, we cannot disconnect its current usage and restrictive policies from the context of generalised suspicion against Muslims, the disproportionate impact of these restrictions on women and the structural dimension of exclusion which has an impact on other areas of life and on how society perceives Muslim women.

It is crucial to be politically bold and embrace diversity by ensuring that all can contribute to our societies with their multiple identities. Inclusive and positive approaches need to be chosen over exclusion and limitations on fundamental rights. This will be a powerful way to counter the most xenophobic parties gaining power in several European countries. It is crucial to be politically bold and embrace diversity… a powerful way to counter the most xenophobic parties gaining power in several European countries.

There are already many positive examples of both private and public employers that have made the choice of inclusion and that are increasingly influencing policy and legal developments in different EU countries. We hope countries and private entities which have adopted a restrictive approach will now follow suit.

EU member states should assess the specific effects of rules on religious dress in public and private institutions on Muslim women. They should also ensure that practices and policies promote fully inclusive workplaces, places of education and public spaces, including by rejecting any new proposals to ban religious clothing in employment and institutions. Why has it been so hard so far to choose inclusion over exclusion in support of women’s emancipation?

In the face of the worrying situation of exclusion targeting a specific group of women in Europe, the European Parliament’s discussion supports the broader feminist solidarity with Muslim women that is gaining ground in Europe. At a time when Muslim women are also victims of violent sexist and racist attacks, we need to acknowledge that the structural discrimination they experience is feeding into racism and sexism.

          Sex work, labour unfreedom, and the law      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

‘Free’ labour exists when it is guarded by a system of rights and protections. This places the vast majority of migrant and citizen sex workers at the extreme end of unfreedom.

Sally T. Buck/Flickr. CC (by-nc-nd)

On 2 June, sex workers and activists gathered globally to mark the struggle for sex workers’ rights. International Sex Workers Day is just one day of the year dedicated to the struggle for sex workers. Activists gather on 3 March to mark International Sex Worker Rights Day and on 17 December to mark International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers.

These dates occur because of the historical and ongoing violence against, and exclusion of, sex workers. Sex workers are subject to interpersonal forms of violence, including from police officers and clients, and the structural violence of criminal justice and immigration institutions. They are frequently criminalised or otherwise negatively affected by anti-trafficking laws and policies, and are subject to heightened immigration controls. In the United Kingdom, the Tory government’s hostile environment has created additional layers of institutionalised insecurity for many migrant sex workers, including restrictions on access to housing, healthcare, education, and banking services.

In a recent article I wrote for Feminist Legal Studies, I argue for a Marxist feminist methodology capable or describing and opposing these intersecting exclusions and oppressions as they apply to migrant sex workers in the UK. However, this method can be used to understand the precarious living and working conditions of all sex workers. The fieldwork I am currently conducting with Julia O’Connell Davidson, Jacqueline Sanchez Taylor and Cecily Jones in Jamaica demonstrates this nicely with regard to citizen sex workers.

A Marxist feminist understanding of sex work

My methodological starting point is capitalist relations of (re)production. I believe that the exploitative and alienating relationships we develop with each other and nature as we interact to (re)produce the necessities for life sit at the core of our problem as activists and workers. Our labour, or practical human activity – the work we do for a wage, in the home, and in the community – is being harnessed by capitalism. We are being exploited, alienated, and dispossessed, and this is happening in and through gender, ‘race’, and the law.

We are being exploited, alienated, and dispossessed, and this is happening in and through gender, ‘race’, and the law.

I argue that capitalist relations of (re)production exist on a continuum of unfreedom. At one end of the continuum is ‘free’ labour; the quotation marks signalling that freedom within capitalism cannot exist because we cannot reproduce families, communities, and ourselves without dispossession, exploitation, and alienation. ‘Free’ labour, then, is characterised by the limitation of labour unfreedom. It exists where waged and unwaged labour is embedded in a system of labour and social rights and protections, including a living wage, freedom to change employers and to contest conditions, freedom of movement, access to affordable housing, education, childcare, and eldercare.

In order to understand how we strive for freedom, Marxist feminists reject any approach that privileges ‘structure’ over ‘agency’, ‘experience’ or ‘consciousness’. In other words, because our everyday labour relationships are constitutive of, and are constituted by, capitalist relations of (re)production it is immanently possible for us to collectively contest these very same relations. This is particularly important in the context of sex work and debates about sex work or ‘prostitution’. Sex workers voices are not often heard and academics tend to focus too much on constraints or choice rather than the dynamic interplay between structure and agency.

Unfree migrant and citizen sex workers

What, then, does this tell us about the expression of capitalist legal relations and sex work? To start with migrant sex workers in the UK: immigration law repressively incorporates these workers. Migrant sex workers do not arrive with a visa to work in the sex industry. Heightened policing – through a combination of immigration law, anti-trafficking law, and absent labour and social protections and rights – further pushes sex work into the margins and associates it with ‘other’ jurisdictions and spaces. This legal ‘othering’ is reinforced by media discourses and prevailing gender, sexual, and racial stereotypes in the UK. By this point solidly ‘othered’, this status becomes a justification for their devaluation and abuse by the state, employers, intermediaries, and clients.

Citizen sex workers experience many of the same legal exclusions in the UK as migrant sex workers. Labour law rarely touches the sexual services sector. Citizen sex workers who work in managed environments experience employment precarity. The dominant employment relation in such contexts is false self-employment, and so workers have no certainty of employment, little control over the labour process, and no regulatory protection. While wages can be adequate there is no certainty that a debt relationship between the worker and management will not emerge. Unless sex workers register as self-employed they will not be able to access many social welfare protections that depend on being in paid employment.

Invisibility, devaluation, criminalisation, and state disavowal all combine to allow managers and clients to practice high levels of exploitation, control, and abuse.

As a form of work that often takes place in the ‘private’ sphere (the ‘thick walls’ of the home, apartment, or brothel) it is not seen as ‘real’ work by the employers, clients, or the state. The relationship between sexism, the desire to control female sexuality, and the stigmatisation of sex workers also helps to explain on-going criminalisation and the widespread reluctance to see sex work as a legitimate form of service work. This mix of invisibility, devaluation, criminalisation, and state disavowal all combine to allow managers and clients to practice high levels of exploitation, control, and abuse.

Through conversations and a collaborative workshop with the Sex Worker Association of Jamaica, we have learnt that Jamaican sex workers are also rendered criminals and second-class citizens in a host of ways that do not turn on having illegal status.

If ‘free’ labour exists where all labour – paid and unpaid – is embedded in a system of labour and social rights and protections, we must conclude that the vast majority of (migrant) sex workers globally populate the extreme end of unfreedom. At the same time, Marxist and social reproduction feminists stress the fact that:

“interests and relational dynamics can and do compete with the capitalist imperative. Struggles for access to abortion, childcare, better wages, and healthy drinking water, for example, reshape relations between workers and capital, and those among workers themselves. If successful, they chip away at patriarchal and other forms of relations; if they fail, they tend to reinforce such relations” (Ferguson 2016).

Sex workers and activists in the UK, Jamaica, and globally are discussing and demanding labour ‘freedoms’. They are arguing for individual and collective labour rights in combination with regulation of labour intermediaries, recruitment agencies and brothels/clubs, decriminalisation, social welfare entitlement, and radical restructuring of border controls in recognition that these ‘freedoms’ will transfer a significant amount of power to (migrant) sex workers. In the words of one Jamaican sex worker, it is time to stop “using, abusing, and refusing sex workers”.

Refusal to Use Preferred Gender Pronouns Costs British Doctor His Job

The belief that gender is assigned at birth has cost one British doctor his job as a disability assessor for the Department of Work and Pensions in the United Kingdom.

Dr. David Mackereth, 55, the father of four, was dismissed from the department after only recently being hired because he told the instructor for a training course that he would not recognize a pronoun that didn’t correspond to a patient’s biological sex, the Telegraph reported Sunday.

Mackereth, who worked 26 years for the National Health Service, says sex is established at birth and is both genetic and biological. That’s something that “has been believed by mankind for centuries,” he said.

“I’m not attacking the transgender movement,” Mackereth said, “but I’m defending my right to freedom of speech, and freedom of belief.”

Mackereth, from Dudley, West Midlands, was hired by the Department of Work and Pensions for “interviewing and then writing independent reports about the health of those claiming disability benefits,” the Telegraph reported.

“I don’t believe I should be compelled to use a specific pronoun. I am not setting out to upset anyone. But if upsetting someone can lead to doctors being sacked, then, as a society we have to examine where we are going,” he told the London newspaper.

After informing the instructor of his objections, “Mackereth then received an email from Advanced Personnel Management, the agency that employed him and would have hired him out to the DWP,” the paper reported.

The email explained that he could “undergo training” regarding the Department of Work and Pensions’ policy, but if he did not address his clients by their preferred pronoun, such action could be “considered to be harassment as defined by the 2010 Equality Act.”

Mackereth now accuses the Department of Work and Pensions and Advanced Personnel Management of violating his right to freedom of speech. The Telegraph also reported that he has concerns that “many other” people of faith like him could be dismissed from jobs if they believe in birth-assigned gender. He is a Reformed Baptist.

A Department of Work and Pensions spokeswoman told the Telegraph: “Dr. Mackereth made it clear during his training that he would refuse to use pronouns which did not match his own view of a person’s biological gender,” and that he would be violating the Equality Act by discriminating against individuals with a “protected characteristic.”

But Mackereth maintains that he is being discriminated against for his beliefs and even went so far as to say that the UK government was policing thought.

“Firstly, we are not allowed to say what we believe. Secondly, as my case shows, we are not allowed to think what we believe,” he said. “Finally, we are not allowed to defend what we believe.”

“The best biology, psychology, and philosophy all support an understanding of sex as a bodily reality and of gender as a social manifestation of bodily sex. Biology isn’t bigotry,” said Ryan T. Anderson, senior research fellow at The Heritage Foundation and author of “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment.”

“Government shouldn’t coerce people to think, speak, or act in ways that violate these basic truths. Indeed, there are human costs to getting human nature wrong,” he said.

Preventing abortion

Comedians making jokes about getting your abortions now, before the Supreme Court abolishes Roe v. Wade. Emojis indicating a woman won’t have sex with a man who is anti-abortion. Headline declarations that “There’s A Special Place In Hell For Women Who Gut Abortion Rights.” Such has been the digital deluge after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court.

What is the future of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal in all three trimesters of pregnancy? This issue has polarized much of the country. It’s an opportunity to ask: Who are we and who do we want to be? A people who let the court determine things we should be talking about on a more intimate level, or a people known for stepping up to the plate when life gets hard?

Friends of mine who just returned from the Holy Land mentioned a group that they encountered along their travels called Efrat. The name comes from Miriam, the sister of Moses. She was a brave prophet who was called Efrat, a name that has the same root as a word meaning “to populate the world.”

As the group’s website tells her story: “Pharaoh decreed that all male Jewish infants were to be drowned, and declared the death penalty to anyone evading his orders. Miriam personally intervened, endangering her own life to save Jewish children from certain death. In addition, she provided the children’s families with all their needs. As a result of her bravery, the Jews continued to multiply and the Jewish nation survived.”

The organization is dedicated to saving the lives of unborn Jewish children.

For Efrat, this is an existential movement, to ensure that Jews will have a home in the world, saving one baby at a time. But there’s a lesson for us all beyond only Jews or Israel.

The people who run Efrat put their resources toward making it possible for a woman to do what seems impossible and sparing her from a life of agony about wondering what could have been if she had let her child live.

Our abortion debates can bring out the worst in our politics. But the people who do the work of listening to and walking with women in their hours of need are some of the saints and saint-makers among us. The woman who trusts enough to believe that she will be able to raise an unexpected child or who gives her child to a loving couple for adoption is one of the most generous among us. The family that opens its home to a foster child for an uncertain amount of time is one of the most loving among us. They are the kind of people we should be giving more headlines and attention to, celebrating and emulating. And we should be asking them, always: What more do you need?

A privately funded project, Efrat’s Yad Chava Baby Fund, is determined that a woman should not have to terminate a pregnancy for economic reasons. Its workers have put together kits, delivered to homes, that will get things started and help along the way. The website explains that you can save a baby with a $1,200 donation. “True, money cannot always save lives. But, when generosity and wisdom combine, vision and vigor unite, and then miracles occur. Lives are saved, children are loved, and families are healed and made whole.”

We need more of that.

The chairman of Efrat has said: “We do not have a single case of a woman who was sorry in the end that she brought her child into the world.” Isn’t that the side we ought to be erring on? Not promising simple ways out — that aren’t simple at all — but helping women make choices for life and love? People are doing that in the world, and in ways that aren’t mired deep in miserable abortion debates. They somehow bypass them by addressing real-life needs rather than scaring people further in already trying situations. Instead of adding to the screaming, what if we all found a group and got more involved, financially or with our time? Or we could look around and fill some real needs of people around us. It’s harder work than pontificating about the president’s latest move. And it’s more fulfilling, too. It could even save a life.

Law Firm Faces Charges for Defending Christian Women's Homeless Shelter

An Alaska law firm has been accused of violating a city’s nondiscrimination ordinance after it provided legal representation to a Christian women’s shelter accused of violating the same ordinance.

The Anchorage Equal Rights Commission filed a formal complaint against Brena, Bell & Clarkson, charging the law firm with committing “unlawful discriminatory acts or practices” in violation of a city ordinance regarding sex and gender identity.

Its alleged crime is punishable by fines and possible jail time.

In early 2018, Kevin Clarkson was asked to represent the Downtown Hope Center, a faith-based nonprofit that provides free shelter for homeless women and abused women.

In February the shelter turned away a biological male who identifies as a female. Shelter leadership said the individual was intoxicated.

However, as a religious organization, it does not house biological men in its abused-women’s shelter because doing so would traumatize abused and battered women.

The transgender person filed a complaint against the shelter citing the policy over sexual orientation and gender identity.

It was in the context of that incident that Clarkson made comments to local news media regarding the case. And that’s why he’s now facing charges.

The law firm is being represented by First Liberty Institute, one of the nation’s top legal groups specializing in religious liberty cases.

“It’s the most outrageous case I’ve ever seen,” First Liberty’s Hiram Sasser told the “Todd Starnes Radio Show.” “Because he wrote a brief to the commission defending the shelter and portions of that brief were quoted in the media — he is accused of being in violation of their provision that prohibits you from talking about a policy.”

It raises serious questions about whether American citizens or organizations that are accused of violating sex and gender laws are eligible to receive legal assistance.

“You should be able to have legal counsel and that legal counsel should be able to represent you in court,” Sasser told me. “In Alaska they don’t see it that way.”

First Liberty said the Anchorage Equal Rights Commission is charging its client simply for representing its client.

“This has a tremendous chilling effect on any lawyer who would represent a homeless woman’s shelter,” Sasser said. “To go after the lawyer — that sends a message to all the other lawyers: Don’t take on these cases or we will come for you too. That’s extremely scary.”

Every American citizen should have their day in court. To deny someone legal representation because you don’t like his or her religious viewpoints is unthinkable.

Under the city’s ordinance it’s not out of the realm of possibility that even First Liberty Institute could face charges simply for representing the local attorney. “We are fully prepared if they charge us,” Sasser said.

Pamela Basler, the executive director of the Anchorage Equal Rights Commission, did not return calls seeking comment.

Amazon is used to promote white supremacist merchandise, report says

The definition of white supremacist seems very elastic, as it usually is with the Left

Two nonprofits are criticizing Amazon for allowing its platforms to spread white supremacy and racism, identifying in a report how shoppers can buy onesies for babies stamped with alt-right images, Nazi-themed action figures, and anti-Semitic books and music.

The report, released Friday by the Partnership for Working Families and the Action Center on Race and the Economy, said Amazon’s policies allow it to bar hateful or offensive merchandise and content, but the policies are “weak and inadequately enforced” and allow hate groups to “generate revenue, propagate their ideas and grow their movements.”

The report outlines a number of items available as of June, including a costume that makes it look as if wearers have marks around their neck from being hanged from a noose, and onesies for babies that include images of a burning cross emblazoned across the front and Pepe the Frog.

The report identified dozens of e-books being sold in Amazon Kindle formats that were published by groups labeled “hate organizations” by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors extremist groups.

It also criticized Amazon’s CloudFront content delivery network for “facilitating the publication and distribution of digital media” associated with Islamophobia.

As of Sunday afternoon, Amazon appeared to have removed many of the items identified in the report but others, such as a sword with Nazi symbols, remained.

“Either Amazon does not find the materials outlined in this report offensive or otherwise contrary to its policies, or it does not consistently enforce its own policies,” the report said. “Amazon has been reactive, not proactive, in its response to use of its site by peddlers of hate.”

In the report, the organizations asked Amazon to develop better policies for policing its platforms, to destroy hateful merchandise in its warehouses, and to stop allowing such goods and content to be distributed through its services.

An Amazon spokesman said in a statement Sunday that third-party sellers that use its marketplace service “must follow our guidelines and those who don’t are subject to swift action including potential removal of their account.”

Amazon did not answer questions about what specific items it had removed or what measures it was taking to vet other merchandise. The Washington Post reported that the company was working to remove neo-Nazi bands from its music platform.

“They’re making money, they are doing business with the people who are selling these things,” said Mariah Montgomery, campaign director for the Partnership for Working Families and one of the report’s authors. “The company has tremendous resources, and some of them should be devoted to making sure they are not propping up racist organizations.”

Amazon reported net income of more than $1.6 billion in the first quarter of 2018, more than double the amount for the same period in 2017.

The debate over how emerging technologies are being harnessed by those looking to spread hateful or bigoted ideas has raged for decades. In 2000, Yahoo was sued because it allowed Internet users in France to visit its auction sites, which sold Nazi memorabilia.

But the debate has ramped up in recent years with an emboldening of white supremacist and anti-Semitic groups and pressure from countries in Europe to get US technology companies to crack down on hate speech, said Danielle Citron, a professor at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law and author of the book “Hate Crimes in Cyberspace.”

Nationally, the number of reported anti-Semitic incidents surged 57 percent in 2017, up to 1,986 from 1,267 in the previous year, according to the Anti-Defamation League, which linked the increase to the divisive state of US politics, a rise of extremists, and the effects of social media.

“This isn’t happening in a vacuum, this report,” Citron said Sunday. “It’s happening when there’s a lot of pressure on companies to remove and filter and block hate speech.”

Citron said companies are not legally liable for distributing goods or merchandise that reflect hate, though such practices might violate a company’s policy. She said Amazon has faced less scrutiny compared with companies like Twitter and Facebook, which are rethinking their policies.

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

President Trump really couldn’t have picked a better moment for his first official visit to the United Kingdom. He likes a fight and when he steps off the plane in South East England tomorrow he’ll walk straight into the biggest brawl since Brexit. Britain is in turmoil. Democracy is at stake. And rather than do the polite, mimsy, diplomatic thing, Trump has already rolled up his sleeves and weighed into the fray by coming out on the side of Team Brexit.

Amplitude of the last 5 days (high-low): 92p - 79p - 71p - 87p - 174p.

The average amplitude for the last 5 days is 101p (89p).

In the United Kingdom, a political crisis is brewing. Yesterday, it became known that Foreign Minister Boris Johnson and the Minister for Brexit David Davis decided to leave their posts. Both politicians have expressed negative opinions about the policy of Theresa May and believe that her plan to exit the country from the EU is not feasible. Thus, the authority of Theresa May collapses before her eyes and it will be very difficult for her to stay in power. Johnson and Davis took an active part in the UK withdrawal procedure from the EU and their departure is a signal that very few members of Parliament agree with May's policy. A little later, Theresa May warned the Parliament that the country should prepare for any Brexit scenario, including "hard". Thus, the chances of a "soft" scenario are melting away. Already the former Minister for Brexit David Davis believes that Brussels can make new demands for concessions, considers it unlikely that Britain will leave the Customs Union and the common market and is against the "soft" scenario of Brexit. Thus, in the United Kingdom political chaos reigns now, and the pound sterling, just beginning to restore its positions against the dollar, may again collapse into the abyss. The results of the referendum two years ago showed that about half of the country's citizens do not support the idea of secession from the EU. Approximately the same alignment of forces is present in the British Parliament and even within the Conservative Party. May in the early elections failed to form a majority, and now her political positions are deteriorating every day. In general, in the medium term, the pound's positions again look depressing, and traders now need to closely monitor not only the regular speeches and statements of Trump but also the news from the Parliament of Great Britain.

Trading recommendations:

On Tuesday, the currency pair GBP / USD fell back slightly but remained below the Kijun-Sen line. Thus, shorts are now relevant for small lots (since there is no "dead cross" yet) with targets of 1,3181 and 1,3156.

Buy-positions will again become relevant only after the bulls are fixed above the critical line with targets of 1.3310 and 1.3351. However, given the latest news from the UK, this scenario is now considered unlikely.

In addition to the technical picture, one should also take into account the fundamental data and the time of their release.

          The Evidence Is Clear, Tax Cuts Work      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authored by Daniel Lacalle via The Epoch Times,

It happened again. Tax receipts soared in the United States after the recent tax cuts.

Although it will take a while for the full effect of the 2017 tax reform to kick in, U.S. state and local government tax revenue climbed to $350.2 billion in the first quarter of 2018, a rise of 5.8 percent compared with the same time period in 2017. Individual income tax collections had big gains for a second-straight quarter with a 12.8 percent increase to $107.4 billion in 2018’s first quarter.

But the evidence of the positive impact on growth, jobs, and wages of lower corporate taxes has been published in many studies over time. The example of more than 200 cases in 21 countries shows that tax cuts and expenditure reductions are much more effective in boosting growth and prosperity than increasing government spending.

Multiple studies conclude that in more than 170 cases, the impact of tax cuts has been much more positive for growth.

In Denial

However, some commentators continue to deny the positive impact of tax cuts using the argument that deficits rise.

The fallacy that 'deficits rise' has nothing to do with tax cuts, but with increases in government spending on top of the tax cuts.

The deficit excuse is very simple. It says taxes should not be cut because governments will spend all revenues, even if these increase, and more. But this excuse is wrong.

The mistake of pointing at deficits as proof that tax cuts don’t work is debunked by looking at the proposals of the same economists that argue against tax cuts. Economist Paul Krugman is one example. He argued against tax cuts in his New York Times article “Time to Borrow” after the Obama administration increased debt by $10 trillion. These demand-side economists defend deficit spending, yet consider tax cuts as negative … because deficits may increase. Only Keynesian economists manage to pull off such mindbending logic.

Deficits need not rise or exist at all if governments spend in line with revenue growth. And the evidence points to rising revenues from lower taxes and higher growth.

Deficit Spending

While analyzing the deficits of the G-20 economies during the past 15 years, we found that more than 80 percent come from higher spending. Even in the 2008–2010 crisis, European government deficits were explained more by the “stimulus” plans and government spending increases than any loss of revenues.

Spain, for example, lost 40 billion euros of tax revenues from the bursting of the real estate bubble but deficits rose by 300 billion euros, driven by stimulus and automatic “stabilizers.” The European Union spent almost 1.5 percent of its GDP on stimuli and increased taxes, sending deficits and debt to GDP to all-time highs.  The United States increased taxes by $1.5 trillion under the Obama administration but the average deficit was 5 percent of GDP. The final tally was a $10 trillion increase in national debt.

During the Obama administration and the massive expansionary monetary policies of three rounds of quantitative easing (QE) and ultra-low interest rates, economic growth on average was only 1.4 percent and 2.1 percent if we exclude the crash year of 2009. That compares to an average of 3.5 percent during the Reagan administration, 3.9 percent during Clinton’s, and 2.1 percent during Bush Jr.’s.

Positive Effects

The evidence of the positive effects of tax cuts on jobs and growth is clear.

The 2018 “Economic Report of the President” shows that tax cuts generated more federal revenues even after adjusting for inflation and population growth.

President John F. Kennedy’s major tax cut, which included chopping the top marginal rate to 70 percent from 91 percent, became law in early 1964. The economy grew at an average 5.5 percent, and unemployment fell to 3.8 percent. In turn, the annual deficit shrank to $1 billion from $7 billion as individual income-tax receipts nearly doubled.

President Ronald Reagan cut the top personal rate from 70 percent all the way down to 28 percent. Between 1982, when the first round of Reagan’s across-the-board tax cuts went into effect, and 1990, when President George H.W. Bush broke his no-new-taxes pledge, individual tax receipts jumped 57 percent to $467 billion.

And even President Bill Clinton’s budget surpluses didn’t materialize until after the president in 1997 signed a GOP tax bill that cut the capital-gains rate to 20 percent from 28 percent. Tax receipts from capital gains soared as capital investment more than tripled. Between 1996 and 2000, “the increase in capital gains revenues accounted for a little over 20 percent of the total increase in federal revenues,” former Treasury official Bruce Bartlett said. For the first time, individual tax receipts hit $1 trillion.

After President George W. Bush in 2003 signed the largest tax cut since Reagan—including dropping the top marginal rate to 35 percent from 39.6 percent—government receipts from individual income taxes rose from $794 billion to a peak of $1.2 trillion in 2007, when the mortgage crisis began—a jump of 47 percent.

Stronger economic growth expanded the tax base and brought in so much revenue that Bush more than halved the deficit over that period.

There are plenty more examples globally. Professor Juan Manuel Lopez-Zafra from CUNEF in Madrid points to a few:

  • Russia introduced a 13 percent flat tax in 2001. Revenues rose 25 percent in 2002, and a further 24 percent and 15 percent in 2003 and 2004 respectively. Revenues rose 80 percent in three years. Russia is a country where government deficit spending is limited and the excuse of deficits does not mask the revenue improvement.

  • In 2012, Hungary implemented a 16 percent flat tax. Tax revenues soared 7.6 percent despite a decline in GDP of 1.6 percent. In its 2016 report, the OECD showed that the key to Hungary’s recovery was its tax system.

  • Ireland cut taxes to corporates to 12.5 percent from 50 percent and reduced the value-added tax, and tax revenues soared 67 percent. Between 2010 and 2017, Ireland’s tax revenues increased 21 percent and thanks to an attractive tax policy, Ireland is one of the few Eurozone countries that left the crisis with growth, lower unemployment and cutting deficits. Because spending did not soar.

  • Spain finally decided to cut taxes in 2015 and in 2016 and tax revenues grew 4.3 percent, more than nominal GDP, a level of increase that accelerated in 2017. Unfortunately, governments took the opportunity to increase expenditure, so deficits remained.

  • UK corporation tax receipts surged to a record high in 2017, up 21 percent rise from 2016 and an all-time high, despite the main rate falling from 30 percent in 2008 to 19 percent. The United Kingdom cut the corporate tax rate and did not lose any revenue. It paid for itself.

  • Corporate tax and marginal income tax have been reduced in the Nordic countries since the 2000s, and revenues have increased well above nominal GDP.

The evidence is clear. Tax cuts boost jobs, growth, and, in most cases, revenues. Those who choose to ignore it tend to do so because of a misguided view that governments need to spend more and that private individuals and companies make too much money.

But there is no public sector without a thriving private sector. Taxes cannot be a burden for growth and job creation because governments decide they want to spend more.

Deficits are no excuse for tax cuts. Deficits need to be addressed by curbing spending. Tax cuts are a necessary tool to keep an ever-expanding bureaucratic system from destroying the economy.

Giving back citizens and job creators part of their own money so consumption and productive investment continue to improve is not just economic logic—it is the right thing to do.

The EU's share of the world’s population fell from about 13% to around 7% of the world population between 1965 and 2015. The most populous countries were China and India, together accounting for 37% of the world’s population. China’s population was 1.4 billion and India’s was 1.3 billion, according to a new Eurostat publication. The fifth edition of “The EU in the world” compares the European Union (EU) with the 15 non-EU Group of Twenty (G20) countries, looking at population, living conditions, health, education and training, the labour market, economy and finance, international trade, agriculture and fisheries, industry and services, research and development, transport, environment and energy. G20 members generated 86% of global GDP in 2016, while the EU’s share fell from 30% in 2006 to 22% in 2016. The G20 comprises the world’s major advanced and emerging economies. It includes the EU, four EU Member States (Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom) and 15 countries from the rest of the world (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey and the United States).
          Maine's Republican Repugnant Governor Vetoes Bill To Ban Gay Conversion Therapy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Paul LePage, Maine’s _____-supporting, Republican, because, of course, governor, has vetoed a bill that would have banned gay conversion therapy in the state.

LePage said the bill was “bad public policy” and a “threat to an individual’s religious liberty” though it is a much greater threat to the safety and well-being of LGBT Americans, but, again, Republican.

LePage said:
“Parents have the right to seek counsel and treatment for their children from professionals who do not oppose the parents’ own religious beliefs. We should not prohibit professionals from providing their expertise to those who seek it for their own personal and basic questions such as, ‘How do I deal with these feelings I am experiencing?’”
Except in nearly every case it isn’t the LGBT person seeking help, it’s the bigoted homophobic intolerant idiotic parents of the LGBT person who inflict this on their children.
LePage maintains that there was no evidence that conversion therapy is being practiced in Maine and claims the bill would prevent therapists from having conversations with those who seek advice about their feelings.

Again, it’s the LGBT person seeking conversion therapy.

There are just thirteen states, plus the District of Columbia, that ban conversion therapy, and this week the United Kingdom announced it also planned to ban the practice. A 2018 UCLA study estimated that more than 75,000 LGBT youth will receive conversion therapy from licensed professionals, religious leaders or spiritual advisers before they turn 18 years old in the states that do not ban the practice, which, in the past, used methods such as “inducing nausea, vomiting or paralysis and providing electric shocks.”  

Cuz, you know, gay.

Democratic state representative Ryan Fecteau, who authored the bill, says it’s “ludicrous” that LePage thinks his bill would prevent an LGBT person from talking to a therapist about their sexuality and showed a lack of understanding for the bill and the harm that gay conversion therapies can do:
“I think becoming the first governor in the country to veto such legislation speaks volume about where he places the LGBT community in terms of respect and making sure LGBT youth are protected from a practice that has been proven to harm children more than it provides any sort of assistance.”
Maine’s state legislature will vote this week to override LePage’s veto, but Fecteau said it was unlikely they would have enough votes.

The march goes on, with Maine, under the leadership of a fool taking a giant step backwards.

Media Note
Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
July 10, 2018


Ambassador Tina Kaidanow, Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs, will travel to Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom, and Belgium July 10-20, 2018.

In Saudi Arabia, Ambassador Kaidanow will meet with senior officials for discussions on defense trade issues. Saudi Arabia is currently the largest purchaser of U.S. military equipment through Foreign Military Sales, as well a major customer for direct commercial defense sales, both overseen by the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs. With over $114 billion in active sales, and as demonstrated by our May 2017 $110 billion bilateral agreement in pursuit of Saudi Armed Forces modernization, the United States is committed to providing Saudi Arabia with the equipment, training, and follow-on support necessary to defend itself and the region, against terrorism, malign Iranian influence, and other threats.

In the United Kingdom, Ambassador Kaidanow will join a delegation of senior U.S. government officials at the Farnborough Air Show, where she will hold consultations on defense trade issues and discuss ways to bolster U.S. defense trade with representatives of some of the 350 U.S. companies and trade organizations exhibiting the latest aerospace technologies. Ambassador Kaidanow will also meet with senior civilian and military officials from partner countries in attendance. She will discuss the steps the Administration is taking to strengthen U.S. allies and partners through improvements to U.S. defense trade regulation and government advocacy to expand opportunities for U.S. industry, drive innovation, and expand American manufacturing jobs.

In Belgium, Ambassador Kaidanow will meet with senior officials to discuss a wide range of security and defense trade issues, as well as consult with U.S. officials at the U.S. Mission to NATO and the U.S. Mission to the European Union. Security assistance efforts overseen by the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs contribute toward building key military capabilities for NATO Allies that are essential to address global security challenges; transatlantic defense trade promotes modernization and enhances the military strength of the Alliance by enabling NATO members to meet their commitments under the Wales Defense Investment Pledge.

SECURITY COUNCIL

8307TH MEETING (AM)

Note: A complete summary of today's Security Council meeting will be made available after its conclusion.

Briefings

AMINA MOHAMMED, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, declared: “It is clear that climate change is a real threat and is proceeding at a relentless pace.” The years 2015, 2016 and 2017 were the three warmest years on record, carbon dioxide levels continue to rise and resulting droughts, wildfires, heat waves and floods are being witnessed around the world. While no country will be spared from those effects, they disproportionately impact socially vulnerable and marginalized groups. “We must act together, with a joint vision and a commitment to multilateral cooperation,” she said, stressing that the impacts of climate change will go beyond the strictly environmental and “is inextricably linked to some of the most pressing challenges of our time”. Fragile countries are at risk of becoming stuck in a cycle of conflict and climate disaster; where resilience is eroded, communities may be displaced and exposed to exploitation. Citing the drastic shrinking of Lake Chad — by more than 90 per cent since the 1960s — she said the resulting environmental degradation, socioeconomic marginalization and insecurity affects some 45 million people.

Recalling that she had grown up in that region, she emphasized that she had seen the impact of climate change with her own eyes — “it is real”. Meanwhile, the Boko Haram insurgency in north-east Nigeria and neighbouring countries has left more than 10 million people displaced and resulted in massive destruction of infrastructure, health and educational facilities, commercial buildings, private houses and agricultural assets. The multidimensional nature of those crises underlined the complex relationship between climate change and conflict, she said, urging Council members to view climate change as “one issue in a web of factors that can lead to conflict”. It acts as a multiplier, applying additional stress on prevailing political, social and economic pressure points. Acting on climate change is urgent, and an integral part of building a culture of prevention and ensuring peace, she said. Outlining various ways the United Nations is currently tackling the risks posed by climate change — in particular in the Lake Chad Basin, West Africa, the Sahel region and the Horn of Africa — she said the Organization takes seriously its responsibilities and stands determined to fully mobilize against the phenomenon.

In that vein, she cited the Secretary-General’s forthcoming report in conjunction with the United Nations Office for West Africa and the Sahel (UNOWAS), which will report on recent developments including the climate-security nexus in the region. The recalibrated United Nations integrated strategy for the Sahel is also taking a climate-oriented focus, prioritizing building resilience, improving the management of natural resources and decreasing malnutrition and food insecurity. At the international level, the United Nations helped to connect efforts to combat climate change and ensure that its related frameworks are linked up and complement one another. In September, the Secretary-General will convene a climate summit to galvanize greater climate ambition for the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. Going forward, she said, the world also needed to push towards getting its greenhouse‑gas emissions under control — namely, well below the 2°C target — and to pursue the 1.5°C target as agreed in the Paris Agreement. Further work must place women at the heart of such efforts, as they remain disproportionately affected by climate change, and the United Nations should work to build institutional capacity and foster partnerships in impacted regions.

HASSAN AL-JANABI, Minister for Water Resources of Iraq, said the debate is a step forward regarding international responses to new challenges, as climate change has a negative impact on the pillars of peace. Rising temperatures exacerbate other threats and risks, increasing their complexity and intensity while making it impossible for countries to implement the Sustainable Development Goals amid growing numbers of displaced persons and migrants desperately looking to improve their lives. Major river basins in Iraq and the rest of the region are subject to the greatest ever threat, resulting from climate change, as well as competition for shared water resources.

He said the absence of implementable bilateral and multilateral agreements or regional frameworks for the equitable use of shared water is contributing to potential conflicts that could and should be avoided. The combined effect of climate change consequences, including a reported 25 per cent decline in rainfall and snowfall, and the operational modes of large dams that reduced the rate of inflows by 50 per cent in the Euphrates River since 1998 has triggered desertification, shrinking green cover and rising temperatures while reducing land productivity. This is true for the whole region, as climate change and water depletion are destroying soil fertility and causing food insecurity.

The international community must intervene to enhance resilience and stability in fragile areas, he said. In taking proactive and preventive actions, the global community can avoid humanitarian tragedies, typically most heavily felt by women, children and vulnerable groups. Many of the measures required may be legally binding on member States of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification or the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and compatible with commitments to the Sustainable Development Goals. Providing an example, he said excessive water use and the diversion of ancient rivers are among factors that led to the environmentally deteriorating Iraqi delta of the Shatt al-Arab waterway. Efforts to revive marshlands at the confluence of the great rivers in Mesopotamia have returned life and the native population to the area after decades, leading the area to be enlisted in 2016 as a World Heritage Site. In the face of current water scarcity, the Site could only be saved if effective and cooperative regional approaches are implemented and Member States’ obligations to relevant conventions are met.

Turning to other threats, he said Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/Da’esh) has wreaked havoc on the population and the land and its resources. An approach to the phenomenon of terrorism requires a coordinated, international and regional approach to extinguish hotspots threating peace and security, with Goal 13 on climate change being beneficial to the region. Iraq fully supports diplomatic means to solve water scarcity issues, including through “water diplomacy” and similar initiatives intending to maintain the security of the planet with a view to creating an environment of trust and cooperation.

HINDOU IBRAHIM, International Indigenous Peoples Forum on Climate Change, said that the Security Council must address climate change as a security risk. Climate change is humiliating millions of people by trapping the poorest in poverty. In the Sahel, 90 per cent of the economy relies on agriculture and pastoralism. A heat wave and drought has the potential to immediately hurt the economy and the people, she added. At the regional level, climate change contributes to reinforcing terrorist groups as they take advantage of poverty to recruit the youngest and most fragile. Climate change also creates insecurity at the international level. Take a man in the Sahel, for example, she said. He must take care of his family, feed them and pay for his children’s education. He has two choices: either he can join a terrorist group, that can pay him with money coming from illegal activities, or he can try to cross the Mediterranean Sea to find a job in Europe.

Even in the smallest nomadic community you can find a bottle of Coca Cola, but you cannot find electricity or a radio, she said. “Why give them things that are useless, but not things that can help them and keep them in peace,” she asked. Invest in the local development, she urged the international community, stressing also the need to directly invest in local people and their well-being. Development projects are often limited to big cities, ignoring the people living far from town. She urged the international community to give hope to the young in the Sahel. “They do not have a choice but you do have a choice,” she stressed, adding: “You must give them something beyond hope, because they do not deserve to just survive, they deserve a life.”

Statements

MARGOT WALLSTRÖM, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Sweden and Council President for July, spoke in her national capacity, noting that, during her recent visit to the Sahel region, she met with people dealing first hand with the everyday consequences that a changing climate was having on peace and security. Migrants and refugees are displaced by droughts and floods and traditional livelihoods, such as fishing and farming have evaporated, giving rise to tensions.

“The link between climate and security continues to be a priority for Sweden in this Council,” she said, calling on the organ to “catch up with the changing reality on the ground”. It has been seven years since the Council last debated climate and security, and it is far past time to further discuss how climate change interacts with the drivers of conflict. In that regard, she stressed that the Council first needs to better understand climate-related security risks themselves; it must develop improved tools and reporting on the issue; it should support the establishment of an institutional home for climate and security‑related issues within the United Nations system; and it must frame its response based on the efforts of countries on the front line, learning from their experiences and good practices.

EUGENE RHUGGENAATH, Prime Minister of Curaçao, speaking on behalf of the Netherlands, said that, where climate change threatens international security, the Council has a responsibility to act, pressing delegates to imagine if, 15 years ago, they could have foreseen the millions of people in the Lake Chad region needing relief from water stress, or those in Somalia displaced by severe drought. By responding in a timely manner to warning signs of climate-related security risks “we can adequately address root causes, prevent instability and conflict, and sustain peace”, he said. The Council must ensure action by the United Nations, both in New York and in the affected countries, notably through greater analytic capability, needed for risk assessments, conflict analysis and early warning. It also should encourage conflict- and climate-sensitive prevention and development efforts, as well as encourage the Secretary-General to include climate‑related risks in his reports to the Council, when appropriate. Institutionalized cooperation, properly coordinated across the Organization, was also vital.

YERZHAN ASHIKBAYEV, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan, said climate change is becoming a central theme throughout the world community. It poses a risk as a “threat multiplier”. Calling for “climate diplomacy” to become a part of the United Nations overall conflict prevention efforts, he said it should also be treated as an underpinning concept in sustaining peace — not an end process, but one which ran parallel to prevention, resolution, recovery and rehabilitation. He also called for better climate-related security risk assessments and management strategies, stronger international cooperation, more joint projects to build the capacity of developing countries and investments in new diversified economies. Kazakhstan, for its part, has taken voluntary action to cut its use of fossil fuels by 2030 and replace it with renewable energy by 2050.

KAREN PIERCE (United Kingdom) said the nexus between climate and security “is not an abstract risk” but one that already threatens lives and livelihoods around the world. The shocking estimate that 720 million people are at risk of being pushed into poverty by 2050 by climate change could also mean reversing the major gains of recent years. “We are working against ourselves if we don’t take action against this,” she stressed, noting that the United Kingdom is committed to championing efforts to build greater resilience to climate change in collaboration with a range of actors. It has also committed $7.7 billion in international climate finance, and is among the first countries to carry out a national climate risk assessment.

GUSTAVO MEZA-CUADRA (Peru) underscored the vital importance of understanding the humanitarian crises and conflicts sparked in part by climate change, as well as the threats they pose to international peace and security. The Council must strengthen and harmonize its coordination with those United Nations bodies and agencies charged with addressing the impacts of climate change while fully respecting the mandates of those offices. Spotlighting Peru’s particular vulnerability to the impacts of climate change, he said the retreat of High Andes tropical glaciers has led to floods and other serious challenges. The Council must better shape its decisions, on a case-by-case basis, informed by a stronger understanding of such evolving, modern challenges as climate change. In that vein, he asked the Council to consider a correct assessment of climate risks — as well as the tools required to mitigate them — and to collaborate more closely with a wider range of partners.

JONATHAN R. COHEN (United States) said the Council should consider phenomena such as natural disasters — as well as others that impacted populations and caused widespread displacement — in its work. “In response to these crises, we are all on the same side,” he said, noting that the United States currently applied innovative solutions to assist countries around the globe. In that regard, he described projects aimed at restoring access to water and electricity to Iraqi communities formerly under the control of ISIL/Da’esh, adding that it had contributed $265 million to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Funding Facility for Immediate Stabilization in Iraq since 2015. Outlining a range of other joint projects — including alongside the Governments of the Netherlands and Sweden — he said the United States is also listening carefully to developments in the Lake Chad Basin region and recognized the special challenges faced by small island developing States.

FRANÇOIS DELATTRE (France) said that not a day goes by without someone falling victim to the adverse effects to climate change, whether it be drought, salinization or other threats. “We cannot turn a blind eye to the situation,” he said, urging the international community to tackle this existential challenge. “Each lost day heightens the magnitude of the threat,” he warned. The fact that Council Members are here discussing climate change in no way undermines the Paris Agreement and other multilateral frameworks on climate change. Each country must establish ambitious climate policies. This way, the international community will be positioned to keep the average global temperature in check. The international community must decide to cooperate to tackle the impacts of climate change. It is time to craft recommendations and measures that will be implemented by Governments worldwide to address the adverse impacts of climate change and protect and restore biodiversity.

DMITRY A. POLYANSKIY (Russian Federation) said today’s Council meeting is disappointing and not because his country objects to collective efforts to address climate change. The meeting is another attempt to link the issue of environmental conservation to international peace and security. “We are creating an illusion that the Council will tackle climate issues and that there will be some kind of turning point,” he added, stressing that this is simply a “misguidance”. Climate change is a grave threat, however, the Council does not have the expertise or the mechanisms to effectively counter its effects. Climate change is not a universal challenge to be addressed as a matter of international peace and security. It should be addressed within national borders and with specialized approaches and solutions. Each United Nations agency and department must operate within its area of responsibility. Some say climate change is a threat multiplier, yet fail to acknowledge the adverse consequences of violent military operations and unilateral sanctions, as evident from experiences in Yugoslavia, Libya and Syria. No one today has mentioned the great damage caused by bombings or the subsequent health hazards caused to the people living there. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) bombing of Yugoslavia caused a spike in cancer among people living in the affected area. In Libya, the bombing of oil fields led to significant damage to the atmosphere, he said, also noting the adverse effects of the intervention in Syria and the fighting in Donetsk, Ukraine. The Russian Federation stood ready to and is already contributing to efforts to combat climate change. However, today’s discussion is a departure from practical action.

VERÓNICA CORDOVA SORIA (Bolivia) said developing countries continue to bear the brunt of the effects of climate change. Between 2000 and 2013, 211 million people were affected by extreme and catastrophic disasters. Some of the most industrial countries are shirking their responsibilities, she said, stressing the need to address the capitalist and excessive consumption models. Climate change represents an existential threat, loss of biodiversity and a loss of food security. The shortage of natural resources can further flame tensions. The adverse impact of climate change brings in its wake a range of direct and indirect consequences, violating many basic human rights. “We need to pursue a cooperative and coordinated approach,” she added, expressing concern that large military empires have destroyed entire civilizations to seize oil and other resources. The inequality between States is immoral and intolerable, she added.

TEKEDA ALEMU (Ethiopia) called on Council members to draw lessons from today’s meeting, especially regarding the need to “not be partial” on such critical issues as climate change. He called for concerted global action and described the 2015 adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as “multilateralism at its best”. In some circumstances, climate change could create conditions leading to conflict or exacerbate it, he said, spotlighting the high risk of cross-border conflicts or tensions around natural resources. However, it is important to note that climate-related environmental changes do not automatically result in conflict. In that regard, he called for enhanced efforts to address the root causes of such climate-induced problems as mass migration and displacement. Such global accords as the Paris Agreement are prerequisites in that regard, he said, noting that developed countries should fulfil their commitments under those agreements, assisting developing nations to meet their climate change mitigation needs.

MA ZHAOXU (China) said the international community should work together to address climate change by “actively rising up to existing challenges”. That means providing assistance to developing countries, including through technology transfer. Meanwhile, States must uphold the international principles of equality and justice, respect global climate-related agreements, reject “zero-sum mentalities” and promote win-win outcomes. The international community should implement the Paris Agreement while also adhering to the principle of common but differentiated responsibility and respecting differences in the circumstances of States. Calling on the global community to build a new concept of common, comprehensive security and sustainable development, he said China has long participated in global action on climate change, including in the context of South-South cooperation, and remains committed to assisting other countries going forward.

ILAHIRI ALCIDE DJEDJE (Côte d’Ivoire), noting that the impact of climate change could create fertile ground for the activities of extremist groups, he said the Lake Chad Basin and Sahel regions symbolize the environmental challenges being faced across the entire African continent. Against that backdrop, United Nations bodies should “go beyond usual divisions” in an effort to reverse the arc of climate change, he stressed, calling on the Council to effectivity analyse the root causes of climate-related conflicts and take action to address them. Describing a large and alarming depletion in Côte d’Ivoire’s forest cover, as well as instances of drought and water scarcity, he said such challenges could compound demographic shifts, displacement and food insecurity. This is especially true where Boko Haram and other criminal networks have taken root, he said, associating himself with the outcomes of a recent African Union Peace and Security Council public debate on the nexus between climate change and conflict. Those include calls for more support for African nations struggling with those issues, as well as more action at the subregional level, he said.

ANATOLIO NDONG MBA (Equatorial Guinea) said international peace and security are threatened by many factors. Climate change exacerbates existing risks and has a direct impact at the core of human life. It shrinks the availability of resources, flaming conflict and tensions. Climate‑related issues should be mainstreamed in all reports submitted to the Council. This would help Member States tackle its adverse effects. He urged the need to improve the analysis and information available on climate change to help the United Nations make informed decisions.

MARIUSZ LEWICKI (Poland) said the Security Council is instrumental to enhancing United Nations response towards conflicts, in particular in the context of conflict prevention in regions affected by adverse effects of climate change, such as the Lake Chad Basin, West Africa, the Sahel and Somalia. The Council should also underline the need for better climate-related security risk assessment and management strategies. “We cannot overestimate the critical role of reliable data about climate‑change‑related risks which is key to avoid conflicts, build resilience and prevent natural disasters,” he said. Regular discussions on climate change and security in the Council could complement other deliberations being carried out throughout the United Nations.
